The “Arrested Development” gang is getting back together again, kinda, for Fox’s animated comedy “Sit Down, Shut Up,” which bows April 19 in the plum post-“Simpsons” 8:30 p.m. slot. The Paley Center for Media hosts the skein’s L.A. preem on March 26. The screening of the first seg and Q&A with voice cast members including
Henry Winkler (who plays Willard Deutschebog), Cheri Oteri, Tom Kenny and Nick Kroll, along with exec producers Mitchell Hurwitz, Eric and Kim Tannenbaum and Josh Weinstein. (Other “Sit Down” voicers include “Arrested” alums Will Arnett and Jason Bateman.)
I’m curious to see this show at long last. It’s based on an Australian live-action series revolving students and teachers at a high school that wasn’t particularly successful in its original run.
