Post the original run of “Arrested Development,” Will Arnett hasn’t quite found his footing with live action fare. He was great in the short-lived NBC sitcom “Up All Night,” and his voicework has landed him plum gigs in “Bojack Horseman” and “The Lego Movie,” with his own “The Lego Batman Movie” in the works. But now he’ll get to show a bit of range in the upcoming Netflix series “Flaked,” which looks like it could be nice, minor key effort.
Written by Will Arnett and Mark Chappell (“The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret“), with Mitch Hurwitz (“Arrested Development”) among the executive producers, the series follows Chip, who tries to rebuild in his life in Venice, California. Here’s the official synopsis:
Set in the insular world of Venice, California, Flaked centers on Chip, a celebrated self-appointed “guru” 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. Arnett plays Chip, a man doing his honest best to stay one step ahead of his own lies.
“Flaked” debuts on March 11th. Watch below.
