Arrested Development (2003– )
Feature film based on the TV series.
In PCU Jessica Walters, as the dean, is trapped at a party where "Afternoon Delight" By The Starlight Vocal band plays on a loop. "Arrested Development" famously has an episode centered entirely around the "Afternoon Delight" song, with Walters as the Bluth family's patriarch.
In "Arrested Development" each member of the Bluth family has a different form of a "chicken dance" that they use to mock other people, usually members of their family. Nearly every member (except Buster and Maeby) have their own interpretations, which as Michael and Buster point out often are nothing like chickens or even any birds, just like the ridiculous imitation made by Tommy Wiseau in "The Room".
Multiple Emmy winner.
