Hulu original series are dramatic, hilarious, and addictive - they're basically everything you want out of a television show. Some of the best Hulu shows are Hulu originals: brand-new, original content produced by Hulu, specifically for Hulu customers. You can't see this content anywhere else, but when you're watching Hulu originals, you'll probably forget that mainstream television even exists.  

Hulu is one of the top websites for watching hundreds of television series and movies instantly online. Their business model differs from Netflix and Amazon because they still depend on monthly subscribers and advertisers for all of their revenue. Limited commercials allow Hulu to fund and create more original content. These shows include hilarious story ideas from the biggest names in comedy, the cleverest minds in the entertainment business, and international writers and producers that help bring awesome content from other countries to your couch via Hulu. 

Among Hulu’s original series include cartoons like The Awesomes and Fugget About It, talk shows like The Morning After, and comedies like The Wrong Mans and Deadbeat. There are also shows in the genres of science fiction, documentary, reality TV, teen drama, suspense/thriller, social commentary, and behind-the-scenes. 

The original shows on Hulu are smart, entertaining, and groundbreaking in their respective genres. Hulu is likely to have a long history in original programming as long as they continue to take risks.
