Just a quick PSA: Netflix has released the fourth season of Arrested Development earlier this morning. That means that you can spend the rest of your Memorial Day weekend enjoying the long-awaited final chapter in the story of the Bluth family. It's taken seven years to get here, so we won't blame you if you go on a bit of a binge, powering through all 15 episodes. Arrested Deelopment aired on Fox between 2003 and 2006, and was one of those shows plagued by low ratings, which later developed a massive following through DVD sales. Due to the increased popularity and demand from the fans, Netflix snapped up the rights, making it the newest Netflix Original.

Netflix is set to launch the new season of Arrested Development on May 26th, just three Sundays from now. Arrested Deelopment aired on Fox between 2003 and 2006, and was one of those shows plagued by low ratings, which later developed a massive following through DVD sales. Fans have been waiting for almost seven years for some sort of movie or series continuation (a la Family Guy and Futurama) since then, and now that time is upon us.
Netflix will release all 15 30-minute episodes of Arrested Development season 4 on May 26th, and they'll be a Netflix exclusive.
Kylie Minogue has bared her famous bum for a spoof advert. The 44-year-old singer appears in the joke video for body insurance by British artist Katerina Jebb, which sees the Australian star walking up a flight of stairs in slow motion wearing a racy, white backless gown which exposes her pert behind.
"Are your assets fully covered? Protect and cover the things that are most dear to you. Don't wait until tomorrow. Beautiful Body Of London," the voiceover asks. A logo for fake company Beautiful Body Insurance is seen flashing on screen at the same time.
Russell Brand has signed up to front a new topical late night TV series.
The stand-up comic-and-actor has agreed a deal with cable network FX to present the series on which Russell will give his "unvarnished, unfiltered take on current events, politics and pop culture."
"We're very excited to add Russell Brand's bracingly funny, original, and honest voice to the FX comedy line-up. We look forward to supporting Russell and his partner Troy Miller's ambition to strip down the hosted comedy format to its most fundamental elements and to create something daring and unfiltered for the FX audience," said Nick Grad -- FX executive vice-president of original programming -- in a statement.
The 36-year-old star claims he is "excited" to the "point of climax" about the project, which will hit screens next spring. Making a joke about Fox News political commentator Bill O'Reilly, Russell exclaimed, "I am so excited I'm on the point of climax. In fact, I will put the 'O' into FX, which spells Fox, which is actually the channel's real name. That's the only thing that worries me about all this, to be honest. At least I'll be able to have a Christmas drink with Bill O'Reilly."
Office creator Ricky Gervais is to play God. The comic star is working with Dexter producer Clyde Phillips on new TV show Afterlife, in which he will play the Almighty, however, his interpretation of the all-powerful being will not be the usual benevolent creator of the human race.
"Anyway, I play God. (My version will be) an arrogant, wisecracking son of a bitch, who thinks he's the best thing since sliced bread. Actually he thinks he's the best thing ever because, well, he is. He also loves welcoming atheists to heaven with a smug grin on his face," Gervais said of his character.
Gervais also insists the show is not an "atheist comedy," and has warned potential viewers not to expect a "twisted bloodlusty anti-religious fest" just because of Phillips' work on Dexter, which follows the double-life of serial killer Dexter Morgan.
"We've come up with this show because we think it will be fun, different and entertaining. Not to undermine the moral fabric of America," he explained.
