* SeparatedAtBirthCasting:
** It's easy to see Creator/JasonBateman and Creator/MichaelCera as father and son. Bateman, Arnett and Hale also pass really well for brothers. [[spoiler: The fact Portia de Rossi looks nothing like the rest of the family ends up being intentional, as Lindsay is revealed to be adopted and not [[HalfIdenticalTwin Michael's twin sister]]]].

Added DiffLines:

* DevelopmentHell: Production on the fourth season took years to get together, in part because the show accelerated the careers of half the cast and scheduling was impossible, and becoming a Netflix exclusive with the entire season filmed and dropped at once. The fifth season had similar issues. The irony with the title was not lost on anyone.

Added DiffLines:

** George Bluth was originally intended to be [[SmallRoleBigImpact a minor figure in the overall series]], serving as the impetus for the family problems but behind bars and out of mind. Jeffrey Tambor was so beloved by the cast and crew they enlarged the role.
