I'm really not sure what to think about the news that Fox has picked up a new show by Arrested Development
creator Mitchell Hurwtiz. The still-untitled show boasts a coupla AD
's original directors, which bodes well for the general awesomeness of the program, but the plot's description has me scratching the old headfordshire in confusion. NY Mag's Vulture blog
spoke to producer Jeff Rake, who says the show is a "high-octane action dramedy" (hmmmmm?) about "a Pentagon-based inventor who decided he couldn't live another day standing on the sidelines while Rome burns and accordingly sets out to put his inventions to very real use, behind the backs of friends, family and the entire U.S. government." (Double hmmmmmmm????!) But! He adds that "The heart and fun of the show is the lead character, who, while a badass in his own way, is a very grounded, relatable guy." Huh. Sounds ... confusing, am I right?
