Thursday of this past week, Hulu presented to a host of advertisers that they will be adding more new original programming in addition to it’s already sizable library where consumers are able to stream 40,000 hours of content. We can expect the newlineup to include:
- The Awesomes- Slated for this year, this show will be a superhero series that will be starring Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker from Saturday Night Live. The crime-fighters will battle evil villains along with the paparazzi (a nod to their fame and antics on SNL).
- We Got Next – An inside look at four friends as they share life, camaraderie and conflict both on and off the basketball court.
- Don’t Quit Your Daydream – Starring Adrian Grenier, this show follows famous musicians searching for talented wanna-be/has-been artists to collaborate on new music, and possibly giving them another chance at fame. This is based on an award-winning documentary by Adrian Grenier and John Loar.
- Flow – A serial action series / drama / mystery places Ed Dante in the wrong place at the wrong time, where he gets framed for a crime he is innocent of. In an effort to clear his name and ensure justice is served, he delves into hidden worlds through the mysteries of ancient art.
Other original programming included on Hulu is the “mockumentary” Battleground, and Paul, The Male Matchmaker. Hulu also just recently announced that it has hit a milestone of 2 million subscribers.
