The new Fox series Running Wilde, featuring Arrested Development alumni Will Arnett, is premiering tonight (September 21). Co-starring Kerri Russell, the question is whether this new series can capitalize on Arnett’s funnyman persona and past hilarity enough to make it a good sitcom. So far, there seems to be a swell of negative criticism for Running Wilde, yet with most critics singling out Will Arnett as the bright spot – so there is hope. Running Wilde is the second half of a newcomer dominated block, with fellow 30-minute comedy Raising Hope acting as lead-in, with Glee setting the stage for both.
Will Arnett’s former Arrested co-star, David Cross, is also set to make a guest appearance on the premiere episode tonight.
We have a few videos for you below, including sneak peeks from the pilot episode, a promo and an interview of Will Arnett interviewing…Will Arnett.
