Portia de Rossi speaks about her liberal, selfless character on Arrested Development.
Happy days are here again for Ron Howard who executive produces and narrates this non-traditional sitcom, which won the Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy for this first season.
When the patriarch of a well-to-do family is sent to prison for fraud, his dysfunctional clan bonds together to get through their troubled times. Michael, the only sane member of the bunch, is passed over to run the family business in favor of his boozy mom who hasn't got a clue. Added to the mix are Michael's vainglorious twin sister and her sexually ambiguous husband, their elder brother who continues to fail at being an illusionist, and their younger brother who seems to be stuck forever in grad school.
Filmed hand-held like a documentary and without a laugh track or studio audience, this three-disc set includes all 22 regular episodes, an un-aired pilot, commentary by cast and crew, behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted and extended scenes, plus a special "inside look" at the show by Ron Howard.
