Arrested Development Creator, Star Return to Fox for New Comedy
Will Arnett, Keri Russell
Fox is going to have something Wilde on its fall schedule, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The network has ordered the comedy Wilde Kingdom — the title of which has been changed to Running Wilde, according to Entertainment Weekly and Deadline.
The series marks Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz and star Will Arnett's return to Fox, which canceled the cult favorite in 2006. Arnett co-wrote the pilot and stars as a Beverly Hills jerk who falls for a tree-hugging woman (Keri Russell) opposed to his lifestyle.

The project marks Russell's first foray into TV since her Golden Globe-winning turn on Felicity.
The comedy joins previously reported pickups at Fox for the comedies Traffic Light and Keep Hope Alive and dramas Ride-Along and Midland.
A Fox rep declined to comment. The network's fall schedule will be announced Monday.
