Alia Shawkat Talks About the Weird Persistant Arrested Development Fandom


Here’s Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat on the surprising persistance of AD fandom: “Yeah, it’s kind of ridiculous. Not to bash Fox, because Fox is paying for my livelihood right now, but they never advertised, and didn’t really know what to do with it, I think. So it’s a surprise to everybody that people are caring about this little show that was canceled so many years ago. It’s very strange to everybody, even to Mitch. I don’t think he knew it would get this far. I think a big part of why he’s been doing this is because of Jason Bateman. So he’s like, ‘Well, I guess I should write this thing.’ Because I don’t think he wanted to, to tell you the truth. I think he was kind of hurt.”
