Bosses behind the highly-anticipated return of cult comedy Arrested Development are giving fans the chance to win a walk-on role.

The Emmy Award-winning sitcom, which went off the air in 2006, will be back for 10 new episodes via internet streaming service Netflix next year (13).

Now Netflix chiefs are offering six fans the opportunity of a lifetime by handing out extra parts in the upcoming episodes, which will star cast regulars Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Michael Cera.

Hopefuls will have to submit "an original piece of Arrested Development content" by 18 October (12) to be in with a chance of winning.
