‘Arrested Development’s’ Mitch Hurwitz Signs Multi-Year Deal with Netflix

Mitch Hurwitz and Netflix have inked a multi-year production deal, furthering the relationship that brought new episodes of the writer-producer’s “Arrested Development” to the Internet TV outlet last year.

While there were short-lived rumors that there would be more “Arrested Development” episodes after the first batch’s debut, this deal will allow Emmy winner Hurwitz  to produce, develop and create new projects under his Hurwitz Company shingle.

“We are lucky to be in business with Mitch Hurwitz, a true genius with one of the most distinctive voices in comedy today,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. “Mitch’s inventive approach to ‘Arrested Development’ — one of the top TV comedies of this generation — was ahead of its time, and we’re fortunate to have him on our team.”

Hurwitz agreed, stating that “it is incredibly inspiring to get to produce for Netflix, a company that not only doesn’t resist change, but is leaps and bounds ahead of everyone in forging it.”

“The fact that I’m also getting one month of their streaming right to my TV or Xbox free … well, it really takes the sting out of buying that Xbox,” he said.

Hurwitz, whose credits also include “The Ellen Show,” “Golden Girls” and “Running Wilde,” is repped by CAA, Principato-Young Entertainment and Jackoway, Tyerman, Wertheimer, Austen, Mandelbaum, Morris & Klein.

Variety sister site Deadline Hollywood first broke the news of the Netflix deal.
