TV News - 'Arrested Development,' 'Girls' & 'Westside'

        Thursday, April 4 - Early this morning, Netflix announced that the fourth season of cult comedy Arrested Development will be released - in its entirety - on Sunday, May 26. Additionally, the series' episode order has grown yet again from 14 to 15 episodes.

Christopher Abbott has abruptly exited the cast of HBO's Girls for the series' upcoming third season. His departure is being cited as "creative differences" between him and series creator/star Lena Dunham. He played Charlie, Marnie's (Allison Williams) on-again, off-again boyfriend during the show's first two seasons.

Jessica Lu (Awkward) has booked a guest spot - with the option to recur if the series is picked up - on the ABC drama pilot Westside. She will play Eva, Sophie's (Odette Annable) employee and confidant at her Venice boutique who urges her to purse Chris (Luke Bracey).
