The show had run its course on the Fox network.
Arrested Development opened a lot of doors for me.
Well, we were never coming back to Fox... that was clear.
Yeah, you know, within the context of TV families, these are pretty unsavory characters.
When it sort of finally sets in that you're not going to be doing that anymore... it's disappointing.
This pilot, by far, was the best I ever read - and I hope that insults every other pilot I worked on.
And we... right from moment one, we were always kinda up against the wall a little bit when it came to the future of the show. There were always rumors.
It doesn't look great if you cancel the reigning Best Comedy Program, you know, you're gonna take a hit from a... from sort of a public relations standpoint.
I mean, I gotta say one of the greatest victories on that show was when we got picked up for the back nine of the first season, and they made it a full order.
Well, no, I didn't because I didn't even know the nominations were coming out. I gotta say, it wasn't even on my radar. I hadn't... I hadn't even thought about it.
