BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Netflix says it will be offering instant access to new episodes of the U.S. television sit-com "Arrested Development" starting in 2013.

The Emmy-winning series is being revived in an Internet production deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television and Imagine Television, and will be available through Netflix rather than an on-air or cable network.

"'Arrested Development' is one of the finest American comedies in TV history and its return through Netflix is a perfect example of how we are working closely with studios and networks to provide consumers with entertainment they love," Ted Sarandos , Netflix chief content officer, said in a written statement.
