It just might. The uproarious Will Arnett is Stephen Wilde, a middle aged playboy. He is reunited with his childhood sweetheart Keri Russell’s Emmy, who is an environmental activist living in the Amazon with her young daughter Puddle. Not much happens in the pilot episode besides Wilde helping Puddle convince her mother to remain in civilization (if you can call Beverly Hills civilization).
The pilot was driven by Puddle’s narration. Hopefully this was just an introductory tool. There is definite potential with Arnett’s larger than life comical abilities balanced by Russell’s down-to-earthness (I just made that up, but you know what I mean). Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead and Couples Retreat-Stanley with a C) guest stars as the uber rich neighbor riding a teeny tiny pony. Very funny. Crossing my fingers for a little more substance in episode two, but ok for a pilot.
