The big question no one wants to ask among the fans clamoring and eagerly awaiting return of "Arrested Development" is: does Mitch Hurwitz still have the magic? It's been a decade since the show first went on the air (jesus, we feel old) and sometimes returning to the well, doesn't always yield the same fruit (mixing metaphors, sorry). But if this clip is anything to by, he hasn't lost the touch.

The world that James Ellroy conjured with "L.A. Confidential," adapted in the crackling 1987 noir, is one that captured the imagination and had filmmakers flocking to his work, and in particular the "L.A. Quartet." Brian De Palma tackled "The Black Dahlia" with rather disastrous results, while Joe Carnahan is still hoping to make "White Jazz" at some point. Meanwhile, last year, "I Am Love" helmer Luca Guadagnino, signed up to bring "The Big Nowhere" to the big screen. So what's next? How about a TV series.

In between, he'll be bringing his book series "The Strain" to the small screen and he's found his leading man.

It must be an occasionally frustrating prospect for David Simon to ponder: as his superb HBO series “Treme” struggled with viewers (to the point where it's only receiving half a final season), “The Wire” continues to grow in popularity and adoration. It's then understandable that Simon would shun a return to the Baltimore streets, but that hasn't stopped actor Wendell Pierce from lamenting an intriguing prequel idea.

As the beef between him and Michael Bay finally seems quelled, Guillermo del Toro can return to doing what he does best – namely, keeping a dozen projects in the air simultaneously. “Pinocchio,” "The Secret Garden,” and others are all waiting for his stamp of approval, but now a new cable project promises an influence that del Toro has yet to fully adapt – manga.

“It’s the story of shame, cunning, thievery, dishonor, backstabbing, deceit, bold-faced lying, one-upmanship, psychological torture, lust, financial ruin, and magic, all supported by a very broad beam of dysfunctional love,” Will Arnett says about the upcoming season or batch of episodes or whatever-you-want-to-call-it of "Arrested Development." And that's just fine by us.

John Woo ("Face/Off," "Mission: Impossible II") might have long ago left Hollywood in the dust, but his recent projects have been more epic in scope than any of the films he’s made in the past. His last solo directorial effort, "Red Cliff," had an $80 million budget, and the Chinese version was 280 minutes long. But his next project, the long-gestating "Flying Tigers," is shaping up to be his most ambitious effort yet.

Having barely survived the midterm elections in the season opener, Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) has now finally been granted a greater say in the West Wing, starting with a chair on Foreign Policy. So, would we finally see Armando Iannucci try and tackle some bigger political themes, and perhaps grapple with potentially richer comic material? The answer is: not really. Essentially, this episode is basically A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Meeting, detailing the wide range of mishaps and crisis management Meyer and her team have to undergo on the way to getting her to an important, key strategy deliberation regarding a hostage situation overseas.
