Hulu racks up four more original shows

The video streaming service now has seven original shows it's working on, including four new ones just announced with big name actors like Seth Meyers and Adrian Grenier.


Hulu keeps scoring new original TV shows. With three already under its belt, the streaming service announced today that it will be adding four more original shows that will include some big name actors, according to TechCrunch.

The new shows come at the same that the streaming service is announcing that Hulu Plus has now hit 2 millions subscribers, according to TechCrunch. It had about 1.5 million subscribers in January, so that means that it has added a half-million people in the last four months.

The new shows -- "We Got Next," "The Awesomes," "Don't Quit Your Daydream," and "Flow" -- include stars like Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker from Saturday Night Live, Adrian Grenier from Entourage, and Danny Leiner from The Office, Arrested Development, and Freaks and Geeks.

Hulu's first original show, a political drama called "Battleground," debuted in February. And for the summer, the video service plans to launch "Up to Speed" and "A Day in the Life." According to TechCrunch, Hulu now have more than 360 content partners on its premium offering with more than 40,000 hours of content.

It is not yet known when the four new shows are expected to premiere.
