SplitSlider.com — Will Arnett’s about to be a production exec. THR reports that the actor has launched his own production company called Electric Avenue, and he already has a first-look deal with CBS TV Studios. The potential series is an adaptation of comedian Joanna Stein’s collection of autobiographical essays about being a first-time mother called How Not to Calm a Child on a Plane and Other Lessons in Parenting From a Highly Questionable Source. No other details on the project are available, but Arnett seems like a good fit for the job considering how busy his last year’s been starring in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Millers, and the return of Arrested Development on Netflix.
