has become one of the go-to sites for TV fans that are looking to
catch up on shows offered on major networks that they might have
missed. Hulu also has many classic TV shows that you can't even find
on reruns anymore.
the video streaming site is looking to make its foray into creating
its own TV show.The Hulu
original program will recap the entertainment scene for the
day in five minutes. The show will air Monday through Friday on
Hulu.com. Hulu is looking for two hosts with one of them being a
"very good looking female" in the late 20's to 30 range.
There is no specification of the second host so presumably it could
be a man or woman.Hulu is seeking actors for the parts and
wants the show to be a "Daily online entertainment show in a
hosted infotainment/comedy/satire [format]" along the lines of
The Daily Show meets Weekend Update meets Sports Center. So far, the
show has no official name, though Hulu is looking to find the actors
and get the show into production ASAP. Hulu stipulates that the hosts
must have comedy and improv skills.The actors will be working
Sunday through Thursday evening for $1,000 weekly and Hulu wants no
one that is currently in a union. Fast
that more shows are in the works as well.
will be interesting to see if a website like Hulu that serves up
content from major networks can also come up with its own original
content that is appealing. This is certainly something that could
change the way people watching. If this catches on other networks and
online sites could start doing this as well.Last month Hulu
launched the Hulu
Plus service for $7.99 monthly. Presumably the new show will
be available to all viewers, not just the Hulu Plus subscribers.
