The Arrested Development cast is about to get locked up with Warden Stefan Gentles: Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, and creator Mitch Hurwitz will sit down with James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio, premiering Thursday, Nov. 7, at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
The Actors Studio host memorably appeared on the show as Warden Gentles, and Hurwitz reveals in the episode that he always had him in mind. “As I was in the pilot phase, I was already thinking about interesting casting, and it was Liza Minnelli and you,” he said to Lipton, also referencing Minnelli’s role as Lucille 2.
Lipton, for his part, is getting ready for the big premiere with his very own AD-worthy chicken dance:

Netflix has plans to bring more of the Bluth clan to your computer screens, according to Reuters.
Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said there’s “no question” that Arrested Development would return. At a conference held by The Wrap, Sarandos said “It is just a matter of when and what form it takes.” We could potentially see more AD in the form of new episodes or a film.
But since scheduling is still an issue with the cast, “It’s still speculative,” Sarandos said. READ FULL STORY
'Arrested Development,' 'Elementary,' 'Da Vinci's Demons,' and more: The making of this year's Emmy-nominated music
The Primetime Creative Arts Emmys celebrated behind-the-scenes artists on Sunday — including composers recognized for their work on shows like Elementary, House of Cards, and The Borgias. The characters in the series they work on play more than a small role in shaping the shows’ sounds, as EW learned in talking to the nominees in the music score categories on the carpet ahead of the ceremony, which will air on FXX this Saturday.
Starz’s Da Vinci’s Demons won the award for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music, while Downton Abbey won for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series, and ReelzChannel’s World Without End snagged the award for Outstanding Music Composition for a Miniseries, Movie, or Special.
Read on to learn more about the making of the music for five shows.

Will Arnett may be starring in CBS’ The Millers this fall, but he’s still open to returning to Arrested Development.
“I think that for all of us, Arrested is something that we love doing and we love working together,” Arnett told EW about the series, which might return to Netflix for a fifth season. “Whatever sort of incarnation comes up, I’m very open to it.”
On The Millers, Arnett plays a recently divorced reporter whose plans for bachelorhood get sidetracked when his overbearing mother (Margo Martindale) moves in with him after separating from his father (Beau Bridges).
He’s not the only actor on the CBS sitcom willing to pull double duty: Martindale, who played Russian spy Claudia on FX’s The Americans, told reporters this morning at the Television Critics Tour in Los Angeles that she hopes to return to the role.
So how does The Millers creator Greg Garcia feel about sharing his actors?

Netflix execs keep ratings under wraps but promise 'TV-sized audiences' during investor Q&A -- VIDEO
On the heel of 14 record-breaking Emmy nominations, executives over at Netflix sat down to discuss their current business affairs in an über-hip Google Hangout interview that took place live on YouTube.
Executives touched mostly on economics and stock options, but also mentioned Netflix’s incredible success with original programming. The company now has a solid slate of original shows under its belt, including House of Cards, Arrested Development, and Orange Is the New Black. “When we look at original content, whether it’s House of Cards or Arrested Development, we’re just in the very early innings of this. We’re figuring out how to promote them, and what the ongoing value is, what we see is if we do it right, then these will turn into some real franchises,” Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said.

With 14 Emmy nominations — nine for House for Cards, including Outstanding Drama Series and acting nods for Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright – Netflix has definitely made a statement while making history as the first Internet network to break into the field. “The great message is, and I think Emmy voters confirmed it for us today, great television is great television, no matter how it gets to the screen,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos says.
“What we were able to put on the screen this year earned 14 Emmy nominations. We’re thrilled. We’re a little giddy about it,” he says, laughing hard. “We took some really big bets, but we bet on some really big talent in David Fincher, Mitch Hurwitz, and Eli Roth,” he continues. Hurwitz’s Arrested Development earned three nominations (for lead actor Jason Bateman, single-camera picture editing, and original music composition), while Roth’s Hemlock Grove was recognized for its main title-theme music and special visual-effects.
“We also took a big bet on staying out of their way and letting them create a show,” Sarandos says. “These shows that were nominated today are not the result of pilots and testing and studio and network notes. This is really the result of great storytellers telling great stories, and we couldn’t be more proud of them.”

Arrested Development executive producer Brian Grazer said, when apparently asked today about doing a fifth season of AD for Netflix: “We are in conversations with them to do another. They are interested in doing that.” More proper nouns and fewer pronouns would have been helpful in that sentence. But Bloomberg Television says that’s what the Imagine Entertainment co-chairman meant during an interview at the Allen & Co. conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, today.
We’ve been down this road of endless hints and public speculation before, of course. But this is firmly a more reliable source than, oh, a Jeffrey Tambor tweet, or something. Netflix has previously stated they’d be interested in potentially doing more and, in response to an inquiry about Grazer’s comment, reiterated that sentiment.
