Will Arnett will star in a new sitcom from Netflix called “Flaked,” reports Lacey Rose in a scoop for the Hollywood Reporter.
The story says that the sitcom is “Set in the insular world of Venice, Calif., and is the serio-comic story of a self-appointed ‘guru,’ Chip, who falls for the object of his best friend’s fascination. Soon the tangled web of half-truths and semi-bullshit that underpins his all-important image and sobriety begins to unravel. The streaming service has ordered eight episodes of the original comedy, which will bow exclusively across all Netflix territories in 2016.”
The story adds, “Arnett will write the series alongside his co-creator Mark Chappell (‘The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret’), with Electus founder Ben Silverman, manager Peter Principato and ‘Arrested’ creator Mitch Hurwitz joining the pair as executive producers.”
Arnett also starred in “Arrested Development,” which started on Fox and ended up with new episodes on Netflix.
