Hulu just put out a casting call in search of hosts for a new clip show they have in the works. While seemingly innocuous, could this be the birth of the internet's first major TV studio/broadcaster?
According to All Things D, Hulu's new show will reportedly run five minutes per episode, and appear daily on the site, aiming to capture the day's events in internet and TV culture. Basically, it wants to be a bite-sized version The Soup/Web Soup/Tosh.0.
Like Fast Company says, this isn't the most original idea for a show in any medium, but no other internet-centric company/studio doing stuff this has Hulu's reach or resources. And should Hulu find that they have an audience for original content, it's not so unfeasible to see them dive headfirst into the content production world, especially with the networks and cable providers getting increasingly hostile about internet TV.
