Look who’s all grown up!!
Previously known for distribution, Hulu will create its own original content this summer with three different homegrown shows coming to internet connections everywhere!
We are MOST excited for Kevin Smith’s movie revue, Spoilers.
Anyone familiar with the cult writer/director’s work knows his love for the movies is sincere and we’re imagining this one will be a lot like Ebert & Roeper at the Movies… if they were on a lot of drugs… and obsessed with penis jokes.
Sounds sweet, right!!
The acclaimed director of School of Rock also takes a crack at unscripted TV as Richard Linklater joins forces with Hulu on Up to Speed, starring host Speed Levitch — a promising, “slice of Americana” type travelogue.
Finally there’s We Got Next, a bro-tastic scripted comedy featuring an unusual assortment of fellas on the same pick-up basketball team.
The premise is reminiscent of another low-budget sitcom, The League. Hulu can only hope Next will reach those levels of HIGHlarity!
