Serialized true crime stories are, as Jacobim Mugatu might say, so hot right now. WBEZ’s Serial podcast had us debating a 16-year-old murder mystery, HBO’s The Jinx left people talking for months, and now Making a Murderer is the obsession du jour for anyone with a Netflix account.

Arrested Development season 4 ended on a pretty big cliffhanger. It was a bold move by creator Mitch Hurwitz because there was no guarantee the show, which had been off the air for seven years, would reconnect with audiences.

Season 4 of Arrested Development was a big hit for Netflix and everyone wanted to bring it back, as long as Hurwitz had an idea.
The question became, would he make a movie like he had originally said years ago? Or would the show simply come back for another season on Netflix? Though nothing has been decided on legally, Hurwitz has finally made his decision. He’s writing an Arrested Development movie right now and hopes to do a fifth season after that. Read More »
