Mitchell Hurwitz created the Fox TV series Arrested Development, which was canceled, but is still up for two Emmys. Hurwitz created the dysfunctional Bluth family after serving as a writer and producer for more conventional sitcoms, including The Golden Girls and The Ellen Show. (Original airdate: Nov. 3, 2005.)
