The creator of the FOX comedy Arrested Development
is also behind the comedy Running Wild. This romantic show stars Will Arnett
as character Steven Wilde, an extremely wealthy, immature ladies’ man. Steven is determined to win back Emmy Kadubic, his childhood girlfriend played by actress Keri Russell
. She has become a freethinking and altruistic individual.
Egotistical Steve has only worried about number one his entire life and as an oil tycoon’s son, he has never had to perform actual work to achieve his goals. The only thing that is out of his reach is Emmy.
Emmy’s mother used to work for the Wilde household as a maid when the two originally met and now Emmy is out to save the world. She loves living among a tribe in the Amazon rainforest with her 12-year-old daughter named Puddle, played by actress Stefania Owen
Running Wild reunites the two when Wilde Oil attempts to destroy Emmy’s rainforest home and she tries to convince Steve to help her. He won’t because it may jeopardize his free ride, but he realizes that he wants Emmy in his life.
Steve finds help from his neighbor Fa’ad Shaoulian, played by actor Peter Serafinowicz
and his sometimes friend Migo Salazar, played by Mel Rodriguez
. Steve also makes his assistant Mr. Lunt, played by actor Robert Michael Morris
, help win Emmy.
Running Wild offers viewers well-seasoned actors in a show produced by successful creators. It’s funny, compelling and will hopefully be around to entertain viewers for many seasons.
