John Slattery has been Arrested.
The streaming giant is keep mum over who Slattery is playing, but exec. producer Ron Howard did note that the comedy serial’s rebirth would be “fearless” in a recent interview with MTV:
“[Series creator] Mitch [Hurwitz] isn’t trying to recreate something. It’s been away for a while, and part of the fun that Mitch has been mining and exploiting is, what’s new to discover about these people? What’s delightfully unchanged? He and the writing staff and the actors have a fantastic sense of that. They’re pretty brazen, pretty bold and fearless. That’s what made the show into something that fans really kept alive.”
Arrested Development lands early 2013 on Netflix — as we previously noted, all episodes will be made available upon release in what is sure to make for an intriguing serial-binge experience.
