A teaser trailer has been released to help create awareness for SeeSo, the new ad-free, subscription comedy streaming serving comic from NBCUniversal Digital in January 2016. It posits the existence of a ‘comedy illuminati’ secretly controlling comedy – and hints at the challenges two budding comedians must face to become part of the club.
NBCUniversal Digital Enterprises has announced the debut of comedy streaming service Seeso in January, 2016.
Seeso will be an ad-free, subscription servie that will stream original and classic material as well as stand up specials. Some of the top names in comedy – Dan Harmon, Wyatt Cenac, Upright Citizens Brigade and Cameron Esposito among them – will be featured.
Classic shows like Monty Python’s Flying Circus will be joined by NBC’s late night shows, The Kids in the Hall and more. Follow the jump for details.
Adult Swim has renewed Rick and Morty for a third season of grotesquely hilarious intergalactic adventures.
“It’s an honor to see Rick and Morty join the exclusive club of shows with over nineteen episodes,” said co-creator and executive producer Dan Harmon. “It’s time to demand that the network allow us to draw the characters going to Hawaii.”
Remember Dan Harmon, creator of NBC’s Community (now on Yahoo), was fired from his own show? Well, after being canned, he took a bit of time to take his disappointment, rage, cynicism and ironic wit on the road. The result is the odd documentary Harmontown.
Check out the first trailer for Harmontown after the jump. Harmontown will open in L.A. on October 3rd and be available on VOD on October 10th.
Six seasons and a movie! Community becomes the rare TV series to be cancelled and brought back twice, courtesy of Yahoo Screen. The announcement came today from Yahoo and Sony Pictures Television that the little pop culture whirlwind that could will get a thirteen-episode sixth season beginning this Fall.
Series star Joel McHale said, ‘…thank you to the greatest f%$#ing fans in the history of the human race. It’s the internet. We can swear now.’ For more details, check out the press release following the jump.
