Hulu Orders Supernatural Comedy 'Deadbeat,' From Writers of 'Wilfred'

27 August 2013 11:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Hulu has yet to find a real breakout original series of its own, though the Seth Meyers animated superhero spoof "The Awesomes," which premiered on August 1st, is probably its highest profile to date. The streaming service also released "Quick Draw" this month, an improvised half-hour western from "10 Items or Less" co-creators Nancy Hower and John Lehr. Today the streaming service announced that it has greenlit still another original comedy, this one entitled "Deadbeat," from "Wilfred" writers Cody Heller and Brett Konner. Hulu's ordered 10 episodes of "Deadbeat," which is about a New Yorker who helps ghosts with unfinished tasks. "Arrested Development" director Troy Miller will helm all 10 episodes, and will executive produce the series alongside Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner and Sarah Esberg of Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment. "Deadbeat," which will go into production this fall, comes from Lionsgate Television, which also produces "Mad Men" and...

'Quick Draw' video: Preview a frontier-style 'whiskey support group'

22 August 2013 12:12 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The Hulu original series, "Quick Draw," is a half-hour procedural comedy set in the Old West. It has, however, something of a modern sensibility to it. In this exclusive clip from Monday's upcoming episode, we see that sensibility in a video for a "whiskey support group for not drinking whiskey."

Part of episode 5 -- available on Hulu starting on Monday (Aug. 26) -- the clip shows what happens when the good citizens of Great Bend, Kansas gather together for what they thought was a group for drinking whiskey. Alas, it seems that the Alcoholics Anonymous model isn't such a hit with the men (and woman) of the frontier.

"Quick Draw" follows the crime-fighting adventures of Sheriff John Henry Hoyle (John Lehr) and his sidekick, Deputy Eli (Nick Brown) out on the frontier world of the Old West. Although Hoyle is a man of learning -- »

The creators and star of the TBS sitcom "10 Items or Less" debuted their new web series "Quick Draw" on Hulu Monday. The semi-historical, semi-improvisational Western comedy stars John Lehr, Robert Clendenin and Ralph Garman. Lehr plays John Henry Hoyle, the sheriff of Great Bend, Kans. -- a Harvard alum, which he seems happy to tell the generally unimpressed population. "Quickdraw" is the latest original series offering from Hulu; "The Awesomes" premiered last week. Watch the trailer: Related Articles:  »

"Quick Draw": Funny Frontier Justice

3 August 2013 9:50 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek footage, images and synopsis, from the new 'Old West' comedy series "Quick Draw", starring writer, actor John Lehr as 'John Henry Hoyle', a new sheriff in the 1875 Kansas town of 'Great Bend', premiering August 5, 2013 on Hulu.

Not since TV's "F Troop" and Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles" has there been an attempt at a film parody of the 'cowboy' genre, as Lehr satirizes "Deadwood" with the forensic procedures of "CSI":

"...a 'Harvard' graduate who studied forensic science, as well as being a remarkably good shot, 'Sheriff Hoyle' (Lehr) is also kind of a dummy, in a hilarious way. 

"Joined by a cast of characters that includes 'Deputy Eli Brocias' (Nicholas Brown), a madam/saloon-owner named 'Honey Shaw' (Allison Dunbar), and a hodgepodge of colorful locals, outlaws, and ladies of the night, Sheriff Hoyle is tasked with bringing law and order to 'Great Bend'...

Review: “Quick Draw”

1 August 2013 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s perhaps appropriate that Hulu has access to “Saturday Night Live,” because in terms of original series, the digital service is starting to look like a not-ready-for-primetime player. After the so-so “Moone Boy” and uninspired “The Awesomes” comes “Quick Draw,” a western spoof seemingly devised — given the form’s current low profile — for no one in particular. Starring and co-written by John Lehr, who plays an Eastern tenderfoot who brags about his Harvard background, it’s an awfully slim construct, played at a level somewhere between desert-dry and teeth-gnashing irritation. Whatever the goal, this ought to have been sent back to the drawing board.

Lehr shares writing and exec producing credit with director Nancy Hower, with whom he collaborated on TBS’ “10 Items or Less.” Still, the “Destry”-like premise is mostly obscured by the lead’s Jerry Lewis antics and a been-there quality to the gags.

Hulu CEO insists: We don't think like a network

31 July 2013 10:08 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

To (incorrectly) paraphrase LL Cool J, don’t call it a network. The idea of TV is definitely shifting, especially given Netflix’s 14 Emmy nominations this year, and Hulu is helping push that concept even further, to the point that it doesn’t relate to the traditional network model.

“We’re not really a network, we’re not really a studio,” Hulu acting CEO Andy Forssell told reporters during the Television Critics Association press tour Wednesday. “We’re a distributor at heart.” Forssell says Hulu goes out “looking for voices,” as opposed to networks that try to find shows that fit their point of view. »

Hulu upfronts: Exclusive art from Seth Meyers' 'The Awesomes,' plus Chris O'Dowd's 'Moone Boy' gets a premiere date

30 April 2013 8:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

One of the first things Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker realized they had in common when they met at Saturday Night Live in 2001 was a love of comic books. They always thought it’d be fun to do an animated show for adults about superheroes, and around 2006, the idea for The Awesomes began to crystallize. But it didn’t become a reality until they found the 10-episode series a home at Hulu, where it will premiere Aug. 1 (after a planned screening and panel at Comic-Con in July). The story revolves around the greatest superhero team in history, The Awesomes, and »

TV on Tap: A Shocking "Glee," "Being Human" Renewed and The CW Gets Deprogrammed from "Cult"

11 April 2013 5:06 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

From the sound of things, you should plan ahead and arrange for a group hug to be waiting for you

after watching tonight's Glee.

News

Syfy released a lot of news yesterday and probably the biggest revelation is that it ordered a fourth season of Being Human.

The channel also ordered a bunch of series and pilots. That included a pilot of High Moon from "television icon" (I'm going to use that title in the future, I sound too much like a fanboy when I call him a "god of teleplays") Bryan Fuller, and developing seven other dramas set in space. Every so often I'll see a complaint about how Syfy doesn't have any shows set in space (a big part of science fiction, admittedly), clearly they're trying to address that.

Syfy also ordered a few series including a horror anthology series from Jamie Foxx to air as part of Syfy's Halloween programming. »
