Cera is 'Good' for Innertube

27 November 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

CBS is drafting TV talent for its broadband channel, Innertube, signing Michael Cera of Arrested Development to do a scripted shortform series.

The deal marks the first of its kind for talent agency Paradigm, which has launched a new-media division under former Yahoo! Inc. exec Joel Wright.

Cera, who played the son of Jason Bateman's character on the Fox cult favorite, will star, write and produce The Good Life, Innertube's first scripted program with a talent deal attached. CBS said at least eight multiminute episodes of varying lengths will be produced, with an option for more.

Shot mockumentary-style, Good Life follows Cera and Clark Duke as aspiring TV producers who are so convinced that they have the next big thing on their hands that they remain oblivious to the fact that they have made little progress getting their dream show made.

Good Life is the first offering from Paradigm's new digital-focused division, a team of three headed by Wright, who is charged with helping the agency's client base mine opportunities in new media. »
