Liza Minnelli Will Appear in "Arrested Development" Series Return
10 Sep 2012
Tony and Academy Award winner Liza Minnelli will be in a spin again as Lucille Austero, the vertigo-suffering love interest of Buster on the series revival of "Arrested Development," TVGuide.com reports.
Netflix will air the return of the Golden Globe-nominated series, which is currently filming a limited amount of episodes. Roughly 10-13 episodes of "Arrested Development" are expected via Netflix in 2013. A feature film is also in the works.
The entire original cast, including Jason Bateman, Tony Hale, Michael Cera, Jessica Walter and Portia de Rossi, are reuniting for the new episodes.
Minnelli also earned Tony Awards for her performances in Flora, the Red Menace, The Act, Liza's at the Palace, as well as a special 1974 Tony. She also presented a tribute to her late father Minnelli on Minnelli at the Palace and has appeared in the films "The Sterile Cuckoo," "Arthur," "New York, New York" and "Stepping Out." The singer is also a Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actress.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
