Seth Meyers' Superhero Show The Awesomes Coming to Hulu

It was just Thursday when we reported on Seth Meyers' new movie, Home for the Holidays, and how it was set to go into production later this year. And now comes word that he has a new series in the pipeline for Hulu. I guess he just get super bored being the head writer and Weekend Update anchor at SNL. Gotta keep the ol' brain active somehow! In any case, the show is called The Awesomes and is being produced by SNL/Fallon producer Michael Shoemaker. It'll be about "an unassuming superhero and his cohorts who battle diabolical villains, the ever-present paparazzi and a less-than-ideal reputation as second-class crimefighters." It originally was in development at MTV, but things didn't pan out, so now Hulu has picked up the flag and run with it.

No word on when the show will premiere on the streaming service, or any info at all on it beyond the above synopsis, but I'm sure we'll hear more about it before too long.
