Will Arnett Signs Huge Development Deal With Fox

Fox Hires Will Arnett to Do Something Funny

Think Will Arnett's a funny guy? So do I. And so does Fox, apparently, because the network has just given him a mammoth deal to star in a new comedy — over which he'll have virtually complete creative control.

The seven-figure deal essentially means Arnett can work with anyone he picks, have the show be about anything he wants, and take the project to any studio he chooses. Basically, he's getting millions of dollars to go make a funny show with funny people. That's the life, right? It also just adds to the awesome year for one of my favorite comedy couples, since Amy Poehler has that whole Office non-spinoff spinoff going on.

Of course, having the whole world open to you can be a little daunting — so let's help Arnett out. What's your dream Will Arnett project? And don't say Arrested Development — though, come to think of it, I would totally watch a Gob spinoff . . .

I would watch a Gob spinoff too Buzz! :rotfl: Man, I miss Arrested Development! :cry: Something like the Canadian comedy show "Buzz" might be a good platform for him, but whatever he comes up with should be funny.

that has to be such an ego booster when you're told that you can do whatever it is that you want with whomever you want. i guess FOX is just banking on the hopes that he's got a great idea that people will latch onto. good luck! and i can't wait to see what he comes up with!

This is great news! I love Will Arnett and Arrested Development. While I really doubt he would go the spin-off route, I would be totally disappointed if that happened. I bet he's full of great ideas. :-)
