Hurwitz to write, direct adaptation of sitcom

“Arrested Development” creator and exec producer Mitch Hurwitz is close to a deal with Imagine and Fox Searchlight to write and direct a feature adaptation of the offbeat, Emmy-winning laffer that aired on Fox from 2003-2006.

The show, which remains a cult fave among its die-hard fans, hailed from Imagine Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV. Imagine principal Ron Howard served as the show’s voice-over narrator and is expected to be involved in the feature in some behind-the-scenes capacity.

Hurwitz at present is also exec producing an animated series set to bow on Fox next year, “Sit Down, Shut Up,” from Sony Pictures TV.

Hurwitz’s reps declined comment.
