Filmmaker, actor and funny dude Kevin Smith (a personal hero of mine) will kick off Hulu’s Summer season with a show called ‘Spoilers’, in which Smith and guests will interact with his sizeable audience in real-time to talk about – what else – movies.
Smith talked about the show at length with Wired.
Other new original TV shows that Hulu will serve up during the summer are travel series “Up To Speed” by Richard Linklater and male comedy “We Got Next”, co-created by Kenya Barris and Hale Rothstein.
In addition, Hulu will exclusively stream seven TV shows that weren’t available to U.S. audiences before, including “The Yard”, “Pramface” and “Little Mosque”.
Owned by NBCUniversal, News Corp, The Walt Disney Company, Providence Equity Partners and Hulu employees, the company’s subscription-based service Hulu Plus now has over 2 million users.
