Netflix has inked a rare multi-year deal with Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz to produce, develop and create new series for the online streaming site, according to Deadline. “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,” Hurwitz said today in a statement. “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.” Hurwitz has a successful history with Netflix, after the streaming giant gave new life to Arrested Development seven years after its cancellation on Fox. No word on what the new deal means for a fifth Arrested season, although it certainly doesn't hurt its chances. Then again, this whole deal could also just be an elaborate ploy to bring the world more Koogler. We would be okay with that.
