@arnettwill: I'm peeing with @batemanjason & we can confirm that we are going to make new AD eps and a movie.
@batemanjason: It's true. We will do 10 episodes and the movie. Probably shoot them all together next summer for a release in early '13. VERY excited!
Based around a dysfunctional family the show starred Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor and Jessica Walter. Because the television world works in strange and mysterious ways, the show was cancelled in 2006 after only three seasons, on account of low ratings.
