Awe­some take on Satur­day Night Live back­stage

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY TV -

we­b­caster Hulu is adding to its grow­ing slate of orig­i­nal pro­gram­ming. New shows in­clude an an­i­mated se­ries called The Awe­somes cre­ated by Seth Mey­ers that will trans­late his ex­pe­ri­ences on Satur­day Night Live to a gang of su­per­heroes. Mey­ers (pic­tured) says the se­ries will be a be­hind-the-scenes look at an Avengers-like troupe of crime­fight­ers. He says The Awe­somes was based on back­stage life at SNL, where he is a head writer and Week­end Up­date host. Hulu is also pro­duc­ing a se­ries about a group of friends who play pick-up bas­ket­ball from Harold & Kumar Go to White Cas­tle di­rec­tor Danny Leiner, Are We There Yet? writer Kenya Bar­ris and The Game writer Hale Roth­stein. That show, We Got Next, will pre­miere later this year. Hulu is also plan­ning a fan­tasy show called Flow built around the ur­ban sport of park­our, and a mu­sic tal­ent dis­cov­ery show called Don’t Quit Your Day­dream based on a 2010 doc­u­men­tary.
