As everyone should know by now, Netflix has backed a new season of Arrested Development. It’ll include the entire original cast, and is basically the most exciting thing to happen to television that was previously cancelled ever. Though we might never see Firefly hit the screen again, we’ll always have the Bluth family reunion as brought to us by Netflix. Even better than merely watching the new season, six lucky fans can win a walk-on role by proving how obsessed they are with the show. This can only end well.
Starting today, fans in the U.S. can enter to win one of the six walk-on opportunities by creating an original piece of Arrested Development content. Entries could include video (less than 2 minutes long), a photo, original artwork, or anything else fans can dream up. Winning entries will be chosen by the cast and producers of the show on the basis of creativity, distinctiveness and relevance to the show. Fans can post their submissions directly to Twitter, Instagram or Tumblr, with the hashtag #BluthWalkOn, or enter online at YoureGonnaGetSomeWalkOns.com.
The contest runs from now until October 16th, so if you’re going to make your obscure references to win the role, you’d best start now. Plus, even if you don’t win, you can always say that you “blue” it.
