We can't seem to leave Spike Jonze
alone. We've been following the never-ending status updates on his upcoming film, Where The Wild Things Are
, on a regular basis. And that's not even counting all of its warm-and-fuzzy (and slightly creepy) offshoots
. We'd considered giving the director a rest, but after we heard
he had teamed up with Arrested Development
alums, David Cross and Will Arnett, to shoot a pilot for a U.K. sitcom, we caved.
Jonze, Cross and Arnett will star in The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, the pilot for which will air on the U.K.'s Channel 4. Cross and English writer/comedian/actor Shaun Pye (Extras) contribute as writers for the series as well. In the show, Jonze plays an American executive accidentally sent to run the U.K. branch of the company he works for, only to find himself entirely overwhelmed by the new responsibility.
For starters, let's hope this show gets picked up. Furthermore, let's hope some version of it eventually makes it Stateside, so American Arrested Development
devotees get the chance to watch what happens when G.O.B. Bluth and Tobias Fünke team up with that no-name skater guy
we clearly don't care that much about
. But for now, the Brits have first dibs.
This will mark Jonze's first acting role since 1999's Three Kings
