Running Wilde is the latest offering from Mitch Hurwitz, the genius behind “Arrested Development.” Will Arnett is a star and Creator along with Jim Vallely who was a Co-Executive Producer on Arrested Development as well. Arnett stars as Steven Wilde, an incredibly wealthy man-child who sleeps around and doesn’t have to do much in terms of work. He has everything, except the childhood love of his life Emmy Kadubic (Kerri Russell). Emmy is living in the rainforest with her daughter Puddle (yes, that’s her name. She’s played by adorable Stefania Owen) and her boyfriend (David Cross, re-uniting with his former co-star). Emmy is a super liberal humanitarian who is trying to save the rainforest. David Cross’ character is equally as liberal and just a little bit crazy. Puddle is the voice of reason in this whole thing — she wants to move out of the rainforest and an invitation to a “humanitarian award ceremony” for Wilde is just the ticket.
