SYNOPSIS

Emmy Award-winning comedy ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT revolves around MICHAEL BLUTH (Jason Bateman), the good son who must run the family business after his father, GEORGE BLUTH SR. (Jeffrey Tambor), escapes from prison and goes on the lamb. While George Sr. spent the last year hiding out in the Bluth attic, Michael continued to pick up the pieces and keep his offbeat family from falling apart. But all Michael really wants is to do right by his 14-year-old son, GEORGE MICHAEL (Michael Cera), an earnest kid who works diligently at the family's frozen banana stand.

The Bluths are led by manipulative matriarch LUCILLE BLUTH (Jessica Walter), a socialite as icy as her martinis who is having an affair with her husband's slacker twin brother OSCAR (Tambor.) Then there's the oldest son, GOB (Will Arnett), a struggling magician (sorry, "illusionist") whose biggest trick will be to make some respect suddenly appear. The youngest brother is BUSTER (Tony Hale), a glorified mama's boy (he spent 11 months in the womb) whose hand was recently bitten off by a seal in a bowtie. The Bluth siblings are rounded out by cause-obsessed sister LINDSAY (Portia de Rossi), whose marriage to the hapless TOBIAS (David Cross), a doctor-turned-actor and self-proclaimed "never-nude," is on the rocks. Lindsay and Tobias are the ultra-permissive parents of MAEBY (Alia Shawkat), a 14-year-old who loves finding unique ways to rebel against them. The critically-acclaimed series has featured guest appearances by numerous stars including Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Liza Minnelli, Heather Graham and Ben Stiller.
