Farscape — BOOM! Studios has signed a licensing agreement with The Jim Henson Company to publish multiple comic book series based on the sci-fi show. The group of four-issue mini-series will focus on various areas of the Farscape universe and will work with the upcoming webisodes. Single issues will be released first and then each mini-series will be compiled and made available in trade-paperback form. Farscape executive producer and co-CEO of The Jim Henson Company Brian Henson said, “Working with one of our favorite comic publishers, we know our loyal supporters will enjoy these original adventures while new audiences will have a fantastic introduction to the Farscape universe.”
Arrested Development — Series creator Mitch Hurwitz is putting together an Arrested reunion — sort of. He’s tapped castmembers Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Henry Winkler for his new animated FOX sitcom called Sit Down, Shut Up. It’s based on a live-action Australian TV show and focuses on a group of high school teachers who have a variety of personal and professional issues.
