Are you distraught by TBS speeding up episodes of Seinfeld? Ready to binge all 180 episodes at your leisure? The time is nigh! Hulu has announced that Seinfeld will be landing on its streaming shores June 24th. As we wrote about back in April, the deal reportedly set each episode of Seinfeld at about $1 million dollars a pop. Netflix, who was also potentially looking to acquire the series, payed $118 million Friends instead. Like that contract, Hulu picking up these rights from Sony Pictures TV is one of the biggest TV deals on record. Hulu has been making a bigger push towards original content recently, developing a series based on the 90s computer game Myst, and also picking up a fourth season of The Mindy Project. But it's clear with the Seinfeld acquisition that Hulu is also looking to really populate its back catalogue with marquee content, the same way Netflix has »

Mindy Kaling has made her Cannes debut with the Pixar film Inside Out, a sweet look at the emotions at battle inside an 11-year-old girl's head. The movie also features costars Amy Poehler and Mindy's The Office castmate Phyllis Smith. The trio assembled at the film festival Monday morning for a photocall and a press conference along with Pixar head honcho John Lasseter and director Pete Docter. It turns out that being part of a big ensemble film like Inside Out is a rare experience for Mindy, who is more used to generating her own material. Mindy, of course, created, writes, and stars in her own series, The Mindy Project, which just moved from Fox to Hulu. At today's press conference, she got candid about the state of her career. "I'm not asked to do that many things," she said. "I think I'm very specific - the way that I look, »
Upfront season is all about the search for primetime’s Next Big Thing. But for a studio, the win doesn’t come until a series is renewed for season two and beyond.
For all the upheaval in TV, the 2014-15 season generally proved fertile for Big Four broadcast nets. The renewal rate of scripted series introduced during the September-May frame is higher than it has been since at least 2009-10 for all but NBC, according to research by Variety Insight.
ABC renewed seven of its 11 new series for a second round in 2015-16, compared to three of 14 from the 2013-14 season. CBS picked up five of its eight freshman shows, compared to two out of eight from the class of 2013-14. Fox renewed three out of eight, an improvement over two of eight from last year. NBC so far has renewed one out of a total of 10 scripted series introduced during the past season, »

“It’s very important to us … to have female and ethnic characters,” said Lasseter, the Disney Animation Studios/Pixar chief. “It’s grown in importance over time. As you’ll see in future films, we’re really paying attention to that.”
Lasseter revealed that when he started in animation, it was an industry that mostly employed men behind the camera. “We have been seeing more and more women, and more and more people from all over the world starting to work with it,” Lasseter said. “That’s exciting. I think it will get reflected in the characters.”

Last week, Fox cancelled The Mindy Project after three seasons. It was reported that Hulu was in discussions to keep the series going and today, they announced a deal has been reached.
The streaming service has ordered a fourth season of 26 episodes. A premiere date will be announced at a later date.
Here's the press release:
Hulu Delivers The Mindy Project As Latest Hulu Original Series
New Episodes of the Series to be Available Exclusively to Hulu
Los Angeles, CA – May 15, 2015 – Hulu announced today that it has ordered season four - 26 new episodes - of the critically acclaimed series The Mindy Project. The series will join Hulu’s Original Programming slate in a new agreement with Universal Television.
The Mindy Project will be back, and bigger than ever.

It’s official! On Friday, Hulu announced it has nabbed The Mindy Project from Fox’s scrap heap and ordered a 26-episode fourth season of the Mindy Kaling-led sitcom. The deal between the streaming network and Universal Television, which produces the series, was inked less than two weeks after the show was cancelled.
With the reprieve, The Mindy Project joins a growing list of low-rated cult series, such as Community, that have found salvation on a streaming service, as was discussed on Sos earlier this week. The agreement makes sense for all parties involved. NBCUniversal is part-owner of Hulu, and the subscription service already has exclusive rights to the first three seasons of The Mindy Project. »

Hulu will add the comedy starring Mindy Kaling to its slate of original programming with 26 new episodes. The fourth season of The Mindy Project will continue to tell the story of the titular character, an Ob/Gyn juggling issues in her personal and professional lives. The Svod platform already boasts exclusive streaming rights to The Mindy Project as per a deal with NBCUniversal from April 2014.
“Mindy has been a beloved member of the Hulu family, so this deal is a natural extension of our relationship,” said Craig Erwich, Hulu’s Senior Vice President and Head of Content, in a release. “With so many of her fans already catching up and tuning in to the series on Hulu, »

The world of television keeps changing, and fans of several other canceled shows can start biting their nails anew as Hulu picks up The Mindy Project for a fourth season to air exclusively on the streaming network.
One of several shows with huge, and hugely loyal, fanbases to get cut this year, The Mindy Project is not only a very different style of show, Mindy Kaling is a different style of comic. The result is that while perhaps not for everyone, the show quickly gained a solid support base of superfans.
Not only has Hulu picked up the show, but a 26-episode order is a pretty serious commitment for a streaming service home, and one that keeps the ball of change rolling.
Check out all the info below, and stay tuned for news on dates.

Fans of The Mindy Project lamented loudly last week when Fox pulled the plug on Mindy Kaling’s critically acclaimed comedy, but they can breathe a sigh of relief now that Hulu, as previously predicted, has opted to revive the show for a 26-episode fourth season.
The super-sized season is the biggest order yet for The Mindy Project and will bring the show over the number of episodes required for syndication. Whether Hulu plans to continue the series past that initial order will likely depend on how the series fares compared to the streaming service’s other upcoming originals, which also include Jason Reitman comedy Casual and ambitious miniseries 11/22/63, the latter of which stars James Franco and adapts the tome by Stephen King.

For those gutted by the news that Fox (somewhat surprisingly) axed The Mindy Project, you may now rejoice! The rumor that Hulu might pick the project up has been confirmed. The grab makes sense, since Hulu already owns the streaming rights to Mindy's other seasons (and apparently those episodes have performed very well). In a press release, Hulu says the series will return for 26 new episodes in Season 4, and will be part of Hulu's new push for original programming. Craig Erwich, Senior Vice President and Head of Content for Hulu said, Mindy has been a beloved member of the Hulu family, so this deal is a natural extension of our relationship. With so many of her fans already catching up and tuning in to the series on Hulu, we know her millions of fans will be eager to find out what Mindy has in store for the next chapter. »
