Yahoo! Announces 6 New Web Shows Starring John Stamos, Ed Helms, Cheryl Hines, and Zachery Levi
Yahoo! has announced 6 new web shows that are coming this year. The shows feature actors like John Stamos (Full House), Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Ed Helms (The Office, The Hangover series), and Zachery Levi (Chuck). This initiative shows Yahoo!’s continued focus and energy on original programming.
Yahoo! Chief Operating Officer Henrique de Castro said “Yahoo’s unique mix of content and technology leads not only to powerful and personalized experiences for our users, but also to greater distribution for our partners and higher return for our advertisers.”
Below is the list of the shows and their descriptions as put together by TheNextWeb:
- Tiny Commando: A comedy show created by and starring Ed Helms, along with Zachary Levi, Gillian Jacobs, and other comedic actors about a four-inch-tall private investigator who uses his “awesome fleet of vehicles” to fight crime.
– We Need Help: Created by and starring Cheryl Hines and Rachael Harris, this series focuses on the exploits of the two actresses’ shared personal assistant.
– Losing Your Virginity With John Stamos: Yes, Uncle Jessie is back and this time he’s interviewing celebrities about their first sexual experiences
– Fashion Recipe: This lifestyle show features celebrity stylist Brett Alan Nelson to help show viewers how to get the most from one particular article of clothing
– Cinema & Spice: Julianna Strickland and Natasha Feldman talk about food and films while showing new cooking skills and decorating tips — perhaps a mixture of Mystery Science Theater and Martha Stewart?
– Grill Girls: A working title, this grilling show features Chef Megan Mitchell to talk about how to grill and making things like steaks and pizzas.
Yahoo! even recently signed deals to host video content for the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and Saturday Night Live on their website exclusively. Yahoo! is going to host 38 years of Saturday Night Live content on their digital hub. Yahoo! is also creating a dedicated portal for the WWE starting this summer.
