Considering the state Netflix is in, our money is on Hulu, but only time will tell for sure.
Since the news broke that new episodes of Arrested Development are in, well, development, everyone is losing their shiz, from fans to the tv execs to distributors. When talking of the latter, we're only really speaking of the two online companies that are vying to snag the rights to the 9-10 new episodes of AD when they are finally released.
At present, both distributors offer original episodes of the series from previous seasons, but this war is to get exclusive rights to the new episodes. Looks like everyone's forgotten about the lessons they learned in kindergarten about sharing!
So who will win? No doubt Netflix needs such a high-profiled show to boost their subscriptions and brand, but Hulu seems the more viable choice as it's got more people invested in it than Netflix.
Tough call. Who do U think will snag the coveted series?
