As if we weren’t already excited enough about the revival of “Arrested Development,” Netflix has gone and made sure we’ll remember just how excited we are on a regular basis while browsing the site. The cult sitcom, which aired on Fox between 2003 and 2006, was always great at peppering the show with gags so there were always plenty of in-jokes for fans to love. Well, full credit to Netflix for exploiting those and peppering them across the site.

While as a producer, Ridley Scott has been behind countless projects on TV, as a director, he hasn't gone behind the camera for anything on the small screen in over four decades. You would have go back to a 1969 episode of the show "The Troublemakers" to find Scott's name on the episode "If He Hollers, Let Him Go." Well, it looks something has finally lured Scott to dip his toes back into the format where he first tested his skill.

First up, here's some trivia: Did you know that rapper T.I. was up for a part in "Iron Man 3"? "I was being considered for this one film," he told RapUp (via HitFix) "Now that it's over with, I can say it. 'Iron Man 3.' I was being considered for 'Iron Man 3' and it wasn't to be Iron Man, it was to be another character in the film but our schedules did not align and they had to do their little movie anyway...I told them go on ahead, I didn't want to get in their way." Thanks, T.I.

One thing we most certainly will not be getting from season three of “Game of Thrones” is more episodes, but that’s not to say that HBO’s epic fantasy adaptation won’t be giving fans a significant amount of extra material next year. The third season will be based on the first half (or thereabouts) of George R.R. Martin’s third installment in the Song of Ice and Fire series, "A Storm of Swords," and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have promised that it will be “super-sized.”

Not content with stepping in to save "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" after Matthew Vaughn bailed on directing, it now looks like Bryan Singer is going put his hand in another geek favorite property, but this time, on the small screen.

Until recently, "Parks & Recreation" have been modest with their guest stars, forgoing the "30 Rock" approach of just getting famous people to show, and instead bringing on collaborators that generally elevate the proceedings. For example: Megan Mulally and Patricia Clarkson as Ron Swanson's ex-wives, Detlef Schrempf as himself, Ben Schwartz as Jean-Ralphio and Andy Samberg as the loud Carl. And that careful approach seems to be continuing, as the show has lined up another great guest.

Though it met an early demise this past summer after a lackluster second season, AMC drama “The Killing” got a second chance at life when the cable network announced they would be bringing the show back, with Netflix likely handling a share of the costs. While both Mirielle Enos and Joel Kinnaman are set to return, it seems that other members of the ensemble won’t be back for the new season.

Jay Roach and Danny Strong have found their niche at HBO with political dramas. The director and writer first paired on "Recount" about the hotly contested 2000 election, and they followed it up this year with "Game Change," which focused on the McCain/Palin ticket of 2008. And while they aren't officially signed yet, you can imagine that the network will be giving their agents a ring as they develop "Double Down," a film about this year's election.
