Arrested Development being cancelled, now is the time to explore an idea of mine...
The producers ought to continue production of the series and take it straight to DVD (ala Disney, with their straight to video animated films). With fans paying in the ballpark of $50 for episodes of AD they've likely already seen, $100 for a set of fresh episodes is not unreasonable.... and if only 10% of the current viewership of AD buys the DVD set, that's 420,000 units and $42 million in revenue (or $2.1 million per episode for a 20 episode set)... which should provide a nice profit for its producers.
Seems like a no-brainer to me...
