Shortly after the somewhat unexpected cancellation of his CBS sitcom The Millers, actor Will Arnett started gearing up for a new comedy series titled Flaked, which will air exclusively on Netflix in 2016.
Arnett will star in, write and executive produce the show, which is set in Venice, California and centers on a self-appointed guru named Chip, who gets caught up in a tangled web of deception and struggles to stay one step ahead of his own lies to keep up the image he has created.
This isn't the first time Arnett has done business with the popular streaming service. Netflix is currently airing his animated series BoJack Horseman, and Arnett previously co-starred in the comedy Arrested Development.
Netflix's VP of original content, Cindy Hollandin, spoke enthusiastically about Flaked and Arnett's previous work in a statement: "We are thrilled to be the home of Will Arnett's next series, and look forward to Chip joining his repertoire alongside such diverse and inspirational characters as Gob, Bojack and Batman."
Arnett said, "We're very excited to partner with Netflix—the home of original, original content—and the network I knew would be the ideal home for this passion project."
The series co-creator is Mark Chappell, who wrote for Arnett's series The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.
Netflix has initially ordered eight episodes of Flaked.
In addition to this partnership, Arnett has a development deal with CBS resulting from his work on The Millers. It wouldn't be surprising to see another one of his projects popping up on the Tiffany network in the near future.
