Ron Howard Teases Photo of ‘Arrested Development’ Script on Twitter
April 20, 2017
Ron Howard used Twitter to tease Arrested Development fans with a look at the script for the returning series.
Howard, who serves as executive producer and narrator for the series — showed off the cover page of his script for the first episode of the revived series that’s headed to Netflix next year.
Howard tweeted: “Very very funny 🙂 Lots of lines for the narrator too!”
Two weeks ago, Howard and star Jason Bateman tweeted photos from the writer’s room of the show. The pair also confirmed that shooting would start “in four weeks” — which puts the start date at the first or second week of August.
The picture, showing the front page of the script on Howard’s iPad, doesn’t reveal any major details, but there are some exciting clues for longtime fans.
The episode title is “Michael” — the name of Jason Bateman’s character, and the central protagonist for the show. At the NAB Show in April, Hurwitz said the revived series would focus on catching up with each family member in each episode.
The episode is numbered 401, or the first episode of the fourth season and the photo indicates that the white pages (or shooting pages) for the script were last revised on July 9, 2012.
We can’t wait for the return of Arrested Development. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
