'Flaked': How Will Arnett Reinvented Himself

11 March 2016 9:06 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Will Arnett has a not-altogether-outlandish theory: play a TV character long enough and audiences will find it increasingly difficult to separate you from that fictional construct. "People have this preconceived notion of me," contends the actor, best known as Gob Bluth, the egotistical, moronic magician on Arrested Development. "I'm Gob to them: this thoughtless sociopath who lives this bizarre, ego-driven life. That would be insanity. As I get older, I'm sort of fascinated with the idea of somebody who could construct an entire persona for themselves — one that was really, »

Flaked Season 1 Review

10 March 2016 6:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Will Arnett stars in Netflix’s newest comedy, Flaked, which charts the laid-back problems of a former alcoholic as he wanders the streets of Venice Beach on a bicycle. If that description doesn’t do much for you, don’t worry, you aren’t in the minority – the show is neither a comedy, nor a drama, nor much of a TV show. Sure, characters fight, love triangles form and season-ending twists aim to shock, but Flaked never escapes a feeling of falsity.

It’s a show that feels like a textbook’s idea of a show: each character has the perfectly redeemable flaw, episode structure grows repetitive by the half-way point, and attempts at unfolding the mystery around certain characters universally end in a brick wall. It’s a dull addict drama, a humorless buddy comedy, and an unromantic romantic comedy all bundled »

TV Review: ‘Flaked’

1 March 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix made all eight episodes available of its new series “Flaked,” which answers the nagging question that arises while watching the first chapter of this Will Arnett vehicle, “Is this going to get any better?” The answer is: only marginally, including a few late-in-the-game twists that don’t really do much to enrich the experience. The premium TV world is a magnet for vanity projects, but few are as pointless – or unnecessary – as this one.

Already making hay with Netflix on the animated “BoJack Horseman,” Arnett co-created “Flaked” with Mark Chappell (“The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret”), and is reunited with “Arrested Development’s” Mitchell Hurwitz among its producers. But other than a very particular snapshot of the quirks associated with the beach-adjacent L.A. hamlet known as Venice, the combination has yielded a half-hour series that’s arrested primarily by its half-baked approach to comedy or drama.

Watch the trailer for Will Arnett’s Netflix comedy Flaked

12 February 2016 1:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer for Will Arnett’s forthcoming Netflix comedy series Flaked has just arrived. Watch Arnett, a compulsive liar and furniture craftsman, as he attempts to beat his addictions and balance his relationships while getting his life back together in Venice, California.

Flaked costars David Sullivan, Ruth Kearney, George Basil and Lina Esco. It also reunites Arnett with Mitch Hurwitz, best known for creating cult comedy series Arrested Development (on which the former had a co-starring role). Hurwitz exec-produced Arnett’s new series, but the similarities between the two shows appear to end there. Fans hoping for the over-the-top antics of Gob Bluth will have to settle for a far more even-tempered Arnett in Flaked, one that looks to promise layers of depth. It appears Arnett is thrilled with the slight change in direction as he told EW he’s been wanting to play this type of role for years. »

Netflix has released the first trailer for its Will Arnett comedy series “Flaked.”

Set in Venice, California, “Flaked” is centered around Chip (Arnett), a habitual liar and self-proclaimed guru who’s straining to maintain his sobriety while attempting to sustain friendships and remain a step ahead of his tangled web of ongoing lies.

David Sullivan, Ruth Kearney, Lina Esco and George Basil also star in this serio-comedy, which was created and written by Arnett and Mark Chappell (“The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret”).  Ben Silverman (“The Office”), Peter Principato (“black-ish”) and Mitch Hurwitz (“Arrested Development”) are attached to exec produce.

Will Arnett's Netflix Comedy Flaked Gets Trailer!

11 February 2016 9:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I'll admit, when Netflix first revealed that they were essentially working to become a network, I was skeptical. Could a streaming service churn out TV shows of a similar quality as, say, a standard network or cable channel? Not likely. In addition, I didn't quite understand the business plan behind it. House Of Cards came out, and it wasn't the first time I was glad to be proven wrong. The show was topnotch in almost every sense of the word, proving once and for all, that not only were they capable of making great shows, but that they could demolish networks at their own game.

Fast forward to today. Netflix has released classic after classic. From Daredevil and Jessica Jones to The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Master Of None, the streaming service has proven that good storytelling isn't exclusive to standard television. Next up on their list of comedies is one from actor Will Arnett, »

Post the original run of "Arrested Development," Will Arnett hasn't quite found his footing with live action fare. He was great in the short-lived NBC sitcom "Up All Night," and his voicework has landed him plum gigs in "Bojack Horseman" and "The Lego Movie," with his own "The Lego Batman Movie" in the works. But now he'll get to show a bit of range in the upcoming Netflix series "Flaked," which looks like it could be nice, minor key effort.

Jeffrey Tambor Teases ‘Arrested Development’ Revival, ‘Transparent’ Season 3 (Video)

2 February 2016 5:41 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jeffrey Tambor won the outstanding television comedy actor SAG Award this past weekend for his work on “Transparent.”

Next year, he’ll be eligible again for another statue on behalf of the third season of the Amazon series, as it heads into production this week — and possibly, even the fifth season of “Arrested Development.”

After being revived by Netflix in 2013 for a fourth season, rumors have been swirling of “Arrested Development’s” return and a fifth season is said to be in the works.

Recently, creator Mitch Hurwitz mentioned that he is outlining a new season, but would not start writing scripts until the cast is confirmed, which is complicated, due to scheduling. Original cast members are expected to return, and last summer, Netflix boss Ted Sarandos confirmed that negotiations were underway.

When asked by Variety at the SAG Awards about “Arrested Development” coming back, Tambor teased, “First of all, »

Ask Alan: Which Peak TV shows will age the worst?

29 January 2016 5:56 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy Friday, everybody! In this week's Ask Alan, I take questions on whether certain Peak TV shows won't age particularly well, which showrunners have the most impressive "writers tree" of all(*), and whether TV's increased serialization makes it harder to air episodes out of order these days. (*) One I had in my notes but neglected to mention when I recorded this: Susan Harris, who on "Golden Girls" alone employed future show creators Marc Cherry, Mitch Hurwitz, and the "Modern Family" Christopher Lloyd. You can watch the video embedded at the top and bottom of this post. As always, you can send questions to askalan@hitfix.com. »

Why Matt Weiner 'would lose' if he wanted to make a weekly Netflix show

26 January 2016 11:16 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the last few years, Netflix has arguably done more to change the way we watch, talk, and think about television than anyone since HBO in the turn of the century days of "The Sopranos," "Sex and the City," and "Six Feet Under." Between their library of titles licensed from more traditional TV operations and their ever-growing stable of original series, Netflix has conditioned viewers to binge-watch shows, has encouraged its creators to design shows made explicitly for that model, and has pushed television in general into a more serialized direction, since the most lucrative afterlife for many shows lies in being sold to a streaming service rather than into traditional rerun syndication. During an appearance at the TCA press tour earlier this month, Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos said that the service would be offering over 600 hours of original content this year, and spending over $6 billion to »
