Hulu to premiere new original series Hulu has announced today that it will premiere three new original shows alongside seven "exclusively licensed" television shows that had not been available to U.S. consumers.
As the company explains, the new series are each 30 minutes long and "include Richard Linklater's "Up To Speed;" a travel series hosted by Timothy "Speed" Levitch; Kevin Smith's "Spoilers," a 10-episode movie revue that combines animated shorts and group chats and "We Got Next" A scripted comedy that follows a four-man pickup basketball team."

Each series has a budget that matches their cable equivalents.

"We've got less nighttime hours to work with," adds Andy Forssell, senior vice president of content at Hulu. "That means we were searching for quirky, really well-done shows that can stand up next to last night's TV."

Hulu has said they will spend $500 million this year on licensing and producing shows.
