Arnett and Shepard Get Wet

ON

Just as I am finishing screening the second season of Fox’s “Arrested Development” word comes in from The Hollywood Reporter that Will Arnett, the man who plays Gob on “Arrested,” and Dax Shepard have sold the comedy pitch Get ‘Em Wet to Paramount Pictures.

Shepard is penning the screenplay, which revolves around two successful hot tub salesmen who go to Japan to break into the local market and embarrass themselves at every turn until they learn to embrace Japanese culture.
