ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT Creator Mitch Hurwitz Signs Multi-Year Deal, Will Pen New Netflix Series

Deadline writes that ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT creator Mitch Hurwitz has just signed a multi-year deal with Netflix to write and produce new original series through The Hurwitz Company.

"We are lucky to be in business with Mitch Hurwitz, a true genius with one of the most distinctive voices in comedy today," Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. "Mitch's inventive approach to Arrested Development - one of the top TV comedies of this generation - was ahead of its time, and we're fortunate to have him on our team."

Also as part of the deal, Hurwitz will consult on possible comedy series for Netflix as well as work on other original projects as an executive producer.

Hurwitz's series ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT debuted its fourth season on Netflix last year after a three-year run on Fox from 2003 to 2006. The series won six Emmys during its time at Fox and received three nominations after 2013's release.

Among Hurwitz's other writing credits are the TV series Running Wilde, Sit Down Shut Up, The Ellen Show, Everything's Relative, The John Larroquette Show, The Golden Girls and the TV movies Hench at Home, The Thick of It and Happiness Isn't Everything.
