LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Arrested Development" creator Mitch Hurwitz has recruited three of the show's cast members -- Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Henry Winkler -- for his animated Fox comedy "Sit Down, Shut Up."

The project, based on a live-action Australian series, centers on staff members at a high school who are preoccupied with their own needs and agendas, which means the students come second.

"Arrested Development" aired on Fox for almost three seasons until 2006, but never did well in the ratings, despite critical acclaim and an Emmy win for best comedy.
