Hulu to offer more original content for 2012
Network and cable TV has been the primary source for new sitcoms and shows, historically. Now, with the adaptation of the internet, that is slowly changing. What started as a mere hub used to catch up on television shows, Hulu is now expanding into producing original, first-run shows on its own.
For those that use Hulu, you may have already known that Hulu had original programing like Battleground, Up to Speed, and A Day in the Life. Hulu’s programing is now expanding to include new shows, titled We Got Next, The Awesomes, Don’t Quit Your Daydream, and Flow.
However, the shows aren’t the only thing expanding, as the works have attracted actors from SNL and HBO. Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker from SNL will be appearing on The Awesomes and Adrian Grenier will be appearing on Don’t Quit Your Daydream.
The topics of the programming range from political humor (Battlegrounds) to superhero action as to be seen in The Awesomes. However, not all shows will be comical, in Don’t Quit Your Daydream, the show follows “a cast of famous musicians,” that “travel across America in search of could-have-been musical artists to collaborate on a new song giving them a second-chance at stardom.” And if drama is your flare, then Flow may be your cup of tea, as the antagonist seeks to find true justice.
Hulu has been growing in popularity, as its CEO went on the record by saying that “1,000 videos a second” are being watched. Those are some pretty jazzed up numbers as that came from 2.5 billion views in just February alone.
