"Arrested Development" alumni reunite for Fox pilot

Tue Apr 15, 5:32 AM ET

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Arrested Development" creator Mitch Hurwitz has recruited three of the show's cast members -- Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Henry Winkler -- for his animated Fox comedy "Sit Down, Shut Up."

The project, based on a live-action Australian series, centers on staff members at a high school who are preoccupied with their own needs and agendas, which means the students come second.

"Arrested Development" aired on Fox for almost three seasons until 2006, but never did well in the ratings, despite critical acclaim and an Emmy win for best comedy.

I guess this may be the closest we get to a reunion!

Fox will probably put this on Sunday nights.

We already have an Arrested Development alum starring in a show where the teachers are focused on more than the students.

Oh, wait, I didn't see that this was animated. That tempers my excitement a little bit, at least until I see what animated style it's in.

No, it'll be on at 7 pm, to maximize pre-emption by a worthless NFL post-game show.

I'll watch just because of the casting. But I'm sad it's animated.
