Mitchell Hurwitz is a Gemini who was born on May 29, 1963 in Anaheim, CA. He is best known as the creator of the critically acclaimed but commercially unsuccessful comedy Arrested Development that was bailed out by Netflix.
Hurwitz has had a long and successful career in television, writing for shows like The Golden Girls, The Simpsons, and Roseanne. But it was Arrested Development, a show about a dysfunctional family, that really put him on the map.
The show was a critical success but struggled to find an audience, and it was ultimately cancelled by Fox. But thanks to the support of fans and the power of streaming services like Netflix, the show was resurrected for a fourth season.
And while Arrested Development may not have been a commercial success, it has cemented Hurwitz as one of the most talented comedy writers of his generation.
