'Arrested Development' Creator Mitch Hurwitz Writes Facebook Note To Fans
Lots of you are probably still reeling after having gorged yourselves on "Arrested Development" over the weekend. But if you still have room for more, the show's creator, Mitch Hurwitz, has posted a handwritten note on Facebook for "friends, fans, supporters, detractors, haters, enemies, and arch enemies."
Dated 5/25/2013, the letter kicks off by saying, "I'm writing on behalf of everyone who has worked so hard to bring back a show that's very special to us to say thank you for your ardent support of this show with the exception of the haters, detractors etc."
It then reads as if Hurwitz might have been drunk when he wrote it. He says that the show's team couldn't have made the new season "without your consistent effort to ‘spread the word’ about it. Although obviously in the case of the enemies, the words you spread were ‘don’t watch this show!’ You know I probably shouldn’t have even included them in the salutation — but I’m writing this in ink + making all sorts of mistakes."
He adds that the show "is yours now," except for the fact that you have to subscribe to Netflix in order to watch it and that there are obvious copyright issues.
The letter is signed, "I
love don't know you, Mitch Hurwitz."
