As if our unhealthy obsession with all things Arrested Development wasn’t bad enough (we’re still trying to get over the news that it’s definitely being turned into a movie), it just gets better.

David Cross (or Tobias Funke as we know him) has announced that he has written a pilot for a UK comedy show called The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.

And it gets better! The stars are set to be Will Arnett (he of Gob Bluth Arrested-fame and Blades of Glory), creative uber-mind Spike Jonze and OTB’s favourite man of the moment Being Human’s Russell Tovey.

Cross told the LA Times: “I shot a pilot for Channel 4. And it’ll air, I believe, in December. When we picture-lock on Friday, it will be almost two years to the day that I was first approached by those guys. The cast is a crazy dream team.”

The show will follow a US exec who is mistakenly sent to run his company’s UK arm, and finds himelf way over his head.

We think we just blue ourselves.
