— The tight-lipped Ron Howard on the new “Arrested Development” episodes.
"I think it’s great and that the writing is great. It’s very bold. I’m very proud of [Mitch Hurwitz]. You know it’s not going off into some place that’s going to alienate people who love those characters, but it’s just going to further enrich their interest in these characters, and the way these characters make us all laugh. I think he’s really done something great. The cast is so excited about it. And it’s cool and fun to get back in that groove, it’s also pushing the boundaries from a story standpoint, character standpoint, and a comedic standpoint in a way that really inspires them. So it doesn’t feel like some opportunistic reunion, it feels like the next iteration of it all."
