Much of the show’s main cast will be on hand to be questioned by Lipton: Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, Jeffrey Tambor, Alia Shawkat and Jessica Walter will be joined by the show’s creator, Mitch Hurwitz. They are scheduled to appear in the November 7 episode of the interview series.
Because this is “Arrested Development” and therefore cannot even be advertised or previewed in a normal fashion, Bravo made good use of Instagram in its promotion of the episode. The pinnacle of this was of course James Lipton’s version of the “AD” chicken dance. Don’t be ashamed if you watch it repeatedly.
Before that, however, there were some more subtle clues about the show coming to “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” Bravo’s Instagram account posted three images — a Neapolitan ice cream bar, a strange photo of Andy Cohen in never-nude-style denim cutoffs and a banana.
There are unfortunately no explicit references to Lipton’s own appearance on the comedy series as Warden Gentles.
Put together, this means nothing more than “Arrested Development.” The “Inside the Actor’s Studio” featuring the cast and producer will air Thursday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
