I SOOOOOOOOOOOO want to see this. I am a huge fan of Arrested Development AND of Jeffrey Tamber and Judith Light.
Being something of a Ludditte, I am having trouble figuring out how to stream it. The critics are all exultant over this new series. I can’t wait to see it.

With Judith Light and Jeffrey Tambor on board, it should be terrific. Both are truly gifted actors.

I finally was able to see the first three episodes. It does not disappoint. Jeffrey Tamber is the quintessential sad clown and Gabby Hoffman is both hilarious and very sad as his youngest daughter, who is brilliant but unable to find her place in this world. Judith Light is morphing into the next Helen Merren playing his world-weary, slightly eccentric ex wife. Did I laugh? Yes. But I cried a little too watching this dysfunctional family lead their quiet lives of desperation, full of secrets and hence, full of loneliness. It’s incredibly good–please try and watch if you can.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.
