Arrested Development is pretty much the best comedy show ever. Since its cancellation in 2006 after three seasons, it has gained a massive cult following. AD creator Mitch Hurwitz created a new show last year called Running Wilde, which was also cancelled, this time after only nine episodes.
Mitch Hurwitz is one of the cleverest, funniest guys in America. So why is no one watching his TV shows? What’s he doing wrong? He lets The Guardian know.
My favourite line from the article:
Don’t bother with a laughter track
Audiences don’t always know “when to laugh”. By omitting a laugh track you can almost guarantee they’ll never find out.
