Netflix has released the first trailer for its Will Arnett comedy series “Flaked.”

Set in Venice, California, “Flaked” is centered around Chip (Arnett), a habitual liar and self-proclaimed guru who’s straining to maintain his sobriety while attempting to sustain friendships and remain a step ahead of his tangled web of ongoing lies.

David Sullivan, Ruth Kearney, Lina Esco and George Basil also star in this serio-comedy, which was created and written by Arnett and Mark Chappell (“The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret”).  Ben Silverman (“The Office”), Peter Principato (“black-ish”) and Mitch Hurwitz (“Arrested Development”) are attached to exec produce. Electus, which was founded by Silverman, and Principato-Young are providing production services.

Arnett previously starred “Arrested Development,” which Netflix revived for a fourth season in 2013. The actor also lends his voice to the lead character in Netflix’s original animated series “BoJack Horseman,” which will return to the streaming service for its third season in 2016. 

“Flaked” premieres exclusively on Netflix March 11.

    Gross . I lived in Venice from 1995 to 2008– I had to leave because of douchey guys like this. The town is nothing but a bunch of Peter Pan men Navelgazing and trying to fuck young girls. I can’t believe they actually made a show about it . Actually I can because Hollywood loves to blow smoke up it’s own butt.
    This trailer seriously made me want to barf.

      what do you think of the show now that it’s out? I’ve never been to venice but I feel like the show is more about an alcoholic trying to keep it together in venice, and while it shows the ‘douchey’ venice guys I think you were talking about (and makes fun of them), I don’t think arnett’s protagonist is that guy.

      you should be happy, it looks like some one agrees with you, they are making a televised satire about “that guy” after all…
