Hulu is Launching 10 Original Shows This Summer

Posted Tue May 22, 2012 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Things kick off with a open-forum movie review style show from Kevin Smith.

The folks over at Hulu aren't slowing down with their original content acquisition and have announced that they'll be debuting 10 new shows this summer, starting with a new series called 'Spoilers' by actor/writer/director Kevin Smith. The concept of the show is to get fans involved with movie reviews while mixing in opinions from "pop culture icons" as well as some animated shorts. 'Spoilers' begins airing on June 4th.

'Up to Speed' is another of the shows that Hulu is going to be pushing. It's a travel documentary in the spirit of 'The Cruise' and 'No Reservations.' The show stars Timothy "Speed" Levitch and was created by Richard Linklater.

"At Hulu, we want to offer exclusive shows and make original TV programming that speaks to a passionate group of fans," says VP of content Andy Forssell, "because today, you don't have to settle for watching something mildly entertaining."
