Netflix Hands 8 Episode Series Order To Will Arnett Comedy ‘Flaked’.

The Toronto-born actor, beloved for characters such as Gob on Arrested Development, Devon Banks on 30 Rock and Batman in The Lego Movie, will star in the new comedy Flaked. “We are thrilled to be the home of Will Arnett’s next series, and look forward to Chip joining his repertoire alongside such diverse and inspirational characters as Gob, BoJack and Batman,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix vice-president of original content. (BoJack is the lead character in the animated Netflix series BoJack Horseman.) In Flaked, he’ll play a “guru” in Venice, Calif., who “ falls for the object of his best friend’s fascination” and tries “to stay one step ahead of his own lies.” Executive producers Will Arnett and Mark Chappell (A Young Doctor’s Notebook), Ben Silverman (The Office), Peter Principato (Black-ish) and Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development). After starring in Netflix’s revival of Arrested Development and the original animated series Bojack Horseman, Will Arnett is returning to the streaming service for his next comedy, Flaked. Flaked is the latest pick up as part of Netflix’s push into comedy, after seeing success on the drama side with the likes of House of Cards and Orange Is The New Black. Netflix ordered eight episodes of the comedy, which will begin streaming exclusively on the service in 2016. “We’re very excited to partner with Netflix—the home of original, original content—and the network I knew would be the ideal home for this passion project,” the actor said in a statement.

Soon the tangled web of half-truths and semi-bull[crap] that underpins his all-important image and sobriety begins to unravel.” Netflix has ordered eight episode of Flaked, which will be written by Arnett and co-creator Mark Chappell (The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret). Other comedies in the pipeline include former NBC series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which launches globally on March 6th; and Grace & Frankie starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, which premieres on March 30th.

He was previously a part of the ensemble for the streaming service’s Arrested Development revival (one that Netflix reportedly hopes will continue past Season 4) and currently voices the titular character in Netflix’s original animated comedy BoJack Horseman. In August, The Hollywood Reporter first revealed that Arnett had formed a production company, Electric Avenue, and inked a first-look deal with CBS TV Studios as well. Like the Johanna Stein-penned book on which it’s based, the half-hour will center on a pair of unconventional parents who try to raise their child according to their own rules — not the rules imposed upon them by society at large.
