Brian Grazer, whose Imagine TV produces Arrested Development, said his company is in talks with Netflix about doing a fifth season of the former Fox comedy series. It would be the second batch of episodes for the internet-video sub service. Back in May, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said the company liked the idea of doing another season. “If the talent were willing to do more [episodes], and interested in that, I’m sure we would be willing,” he told CNBC back then, citing the show’s boffo numbers on Netflix, which he declined to share. Now in a major development, one of the producers says they’re talking about doing an additional season. “We are in conversations with them to do another,” Grazer said in an interview today with Bloomberg Television at the Allen & Co. conference in Sun Valley, Idaho. “They are interested in doing that.” Press coverage of this major development has speculated Netflix was no doubt encouraged by strong sampling for the new season it unveiled in May, based on Hastings having said it did extremely well while declining to share numbers.
