"Actor Jason Bateman says the new "Arrested Development" will likely pull in relatively strong audience numbers, now that it's no longer being held to the benchmarks of prime-time network TV...
"It was incredibly ambitious and complex, what (Hurwitz) and his writers constructed and scheduled to shoot ... it's like a big, huge puzzle, it's really admirable," said star Jason Bateman in a recent interview.
"He's just got incredible taste and talent.... There's such a faith in him by us, he's just completely unsatisfied with anything that is not worthy of accolade."
But Hurwitz wasn't able to pull off his convoluted vision completely, as he revealed to fans on Twitter.
"Done! Just finished the final mix last night. In two weeks 'Arrested Development' will be yours to do with as you please," he tweeted last week.
"Except for one thing! You gotta watch them in order. Turns out I was not successful in creating a form where the setup follows the punch line."..."
