    Netflix Picks Up Will Arnett Comedy Series ‘Flaked’

    by Nellie Andreeva    January 19, 2015 11:22am

      With The Millers over, Will Arnett has quickly landed his next series. Netflix has given an eight-episode, direct-to-series order to Flaked, starring the Arrested Development alum, for a 2016 launch. Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz, who has a deal with Netflix, also executive produces.

      Arnett, who already has animated comedy BoJack Horseman on Netflix and co-starred in the streaming service’s Arrested Development revival, called Flaked “a passion project.”

      Co-created by Arnett and Mark Chappell (The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret), Flaked is set in the insular world of Venice, CA. The series is the serio-comic story of a self-appointed “guru” who falls for the object of his best friend’s fascination. Soon the tangled web of half-truths and semi-bullsh*t that underpins his all-important image and sobriety begins to unravel. Arnett plays Chip, a man doing his honest best to stay one step ahead of his own lies.

      Arnett and Chappell executive produce with Ben Silverman, Peter Principato and Hurwitz for Electus and Principato-Young. Flaked is a Netflix production. Arnett also has a development deal at CBS TV Studios, which stemmed from his starring role on the studio’s CBS comedy series The Millers.

      Netflix has been ramping up its half-hour comedy portfolio with orders to Grace And Frankie, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and animated F Is For Family, among others. The network also picked up a Chelsea Handler talk show.

      Netflix is really coming up Arnett. 

      Hope this ends up doing well. I find Arrested Development and BoJack Horseman are two of the few (non-Lego Movie related) projects to really use Arnett properly (or at least offer him great material to work with).

      Hopefully this will actually be good unlike all of his previous failed sitcom attemps (Not including Up All Night)
