Will Arnett and Netflix clearly like each other, and the partnership that has yielded multiple comedy series already will continue.
Netflix has just announced a new project from Arnett. It’s called Flaked, and it is being co-created by Arnett and The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret‘s Mark Chappell. Arrested Development‘s Mitch Hurwitz is executive producing.
“We are thrilled to be the home of Will Arnett’s next series, and look forward to Chip joining his repertoire alongside such diverse and inspirational characters such as Gob, Bojack and Batman,” said Netflix VP of original content Cindy Holland.
Here’s how The Hollywood Reporter describes the show:
Set in the insular world of Venice, Calif., it’s 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.
Netflix is currently working on another season of the well-received animated series BoJack Horseman, which stars Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, and Aaron Paul.
“We’re very excited to partner with Netflix– the home of original, original content — and the network I knew would be the ideal home for this passion project,” said Arnett in a statement.
The eight-episode first season should land sometime in 2016.
