Production on the fourth season of “Arrested Development” has been very hush-hush and, as a result, we’ve been desperate for information. That’s why we were so excited when two actors involved in the new season offered up some fun facts about the new episodes during recent interviews.

“Workaholics” star Adam DeVine told E! Online that the fourth episode of season four is called “Michael” and even let some plot details slip despite the fact he admitted to signing a non-disclosure agreement. We already knew that DeVine shot some scenes in an airport, but haven’t had any context for that until now.

“[Michael] is trying to get out of town and I work at the airline that he’s trying to get at. And I’m totally inept. I don’t know how to print a ticket or get his bags on the plane, so he’s having a hard time with me,” DeVine said.

Where is Michael Bluth going — or coming — from? We’ll have to wait until the episodes come out to know for sure. At least we know DeVine isn’t the only one having fun on set, though. Alia Shawkat talked to Vulture recently about her experience filming season four.

“It’s very surreal and awesome. I still feel like a teenager who’s insecure when I’m on set around all of the funny adults, trying to talk, but at the same time, everything has changed, and you’re trying to catch up,” she said. “It’s like the weirdest flashbacks, and it’s been six years since we wrapped and it feels like no time has passed, and that’s what’s even weirder.”

Shawkat added, “The scripts [for season 4] keep getting funnier and funnier, and you know, we just get to do some crazy shit.”

Most importantly, she confirmed there won’t be any “Call Me Maeby” jokes in the new season. Thank you for sticking to your guns, Mitch Hurwitz.

“Arrested Development” season four will air on Netflix at some point next spring. It will have anywhere from 10 to 13 episodes, and could be released all at once instead of weekly. This season features the return of the main cast and the addition of beloved recurring characters like Mae Whitman, Liza Minelli, Judy Greer, Ron Howard, Scott Baio and Henry Winkler as well as newcomers Isla Fisher, Terry Crews, John Slattery and the cast of “Workaholics.”

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
