Mitch Hurwitz on Fox’s Request to Dumb Down ‘Arrested Development’


“I’m somebody who probably cares a little too much about other people’s experience and I really wanted Fox to be happy. But I just had to say I can’t do it and they did say you can make it, but we’ll basically just make your life miserable.”

- Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz explains at the Banff World Media Festival why he turned down Fox’s request to dumb down the show after its second season on the network.
