Hulu Launching Original Scripted Show

Hulu is launching its first original scripted show, a political comedy, that will air during the upcoming presidential primaries. First Netflix, now Hulu, kinda makes you wonder who else is going to come out with a show.

Aimed squarely at an audience loyal to cutting edge comedy such as "The Office" and "The Colbert Report," Hulu's new show "Battleground" is a look at the inner workings of a Democratic primary campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in Wisconsin. It was created by J.D. Walsh, an actor who worked for John Kerry during a political campaign.
