The current issue of Star Wars: Insider reveals that the previously unannounced four part arc in season four will focus on Obi-Wan Kenobi and it sounds like it will really let actor James Arnold Taylor take center stage.  Many thanks to our friends at JediNews.co.uk for tracking down the source of this information.   Below is a transcription of the brief article.

"Obi-Wan Kenobi is turning villain! Star Wars: The Clone Wars launches a four-episode arc January 13 that finds the legendary Jedi knight going undercover as an evil marksman from the planet Concord Dawn. He'll infiltrate the Republic prison to gain information about a Separatist plot and, while there, he will mix it up with a cadre of vicious bounty hunters, including cult faves Cad Bane, Bossk, Embo, and Boba Fett. 
"Embedding himself in this group is a pretty awful risk for Obi-Wan," says supervising director Dave Filoni. "It'll cause conflict between him and Anakin Skywalker, the kind that will test their relationship. How well do they really know one another? How much do they truly trust each other?" Among the highlights is an awesome obstacle-course tournament in which the inmates, including Obi-Wan, must prove their bad-assness and fight each other for survival. And, teases Filoni, "there just may be a prison break!" -ML"
