Will Arnett is continuing his Netflix takeover: The "Arrested Development" and "BoJack Horseman" star is teaming with the streaming service on a new series.

"Flaked" will be an eight-episode comedy centered around Chip (Arnett), a so-called "guru" in Venice, California who falls for his best friend's crush, and then attempts "to stay one step ahead of his own lies," per an official synopsis. Arnett co-created and co-wrote the series with Mark Chappell ("The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret"), and is also re-teaming with his "Arrested" boss Mitch Hurwitz, who is co-executive producing the project.

"We're very excited to partner with Netflix -- the home of original, original content - and the network I knew would be the ideal home for this passion project," Arnett said in a statement.

"We are thrilled to be the home of Will Arnett's next series, and look forward to Chip joining his repertoire alongside such diverse and inspirational characters such as Gob, Bojack, and Batman," said Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix, in a statement.

"Flaked" is set to premiere on Netflix sometime in 2016.
