Netflix Orders Will Arnett Comedy ‘Flaked’ For 2016
We don’t yet know when Netflix will dust off ‘Arrested Development’ for another season (despite what certain stars might say), but Will Arnett certainly isn’t hurting for work at the streaming service. Following the success of ‘BoJack Horseman,’ Netflix has officially ordered Will Arnett’s new guru comedy ‘Flaked’ for a full season in 2016.
Set for eight episodes in its first run, the new series will see the erstwhile G.O.B. Bluth as self-appointed Venice Beach “guru” Chip, who falls for the object of his best friend’s fascination. So reads the description, “soon the tangled web of half-truths and semi-bullshit that underpins his all-important image and sobriety begins to unravel.”
Arnett will executive produce and write with Mark Chappell (‘The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret’), with ‘Arrested Development’'s Mitch Hurwitz also executive producing. Says Netflix of the series:
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 such as Gob, Bojack, and Batman.
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.
Well, ‘BoJack Horseman’ certainly turned out better than expected, and there’s nothing wrong with Netflix keeping talent like Will Arnett in house. What do you think? Are you at all curious to check out ‘Flaked’ when its first eight episodes hit Netflix in 2016?
