Hulu’s ‘Spoilers’ heads for TV

Streaming service makes deal with Canada's Space

Hulu has made its first-ever pact to put its original programming on TV.

The streaming service has reached a deal to make its upcoming Kevin Smith series “Spoilers with Kevin Smith” available on Space, a Canadian cable channel owned by Bell Media.

International distribution deal was made via Alliance Media, which has sold other Smith films overseas. Alliance only sells Hulu programming in Canada.

Hulu signaled its intent to extract additional revenue on traditional TV earlier this year when it announced a first-look deal with FremantleMedia Enterprises, which has already committed to shopping another Hulu original, “A Day in the Life,” to international buyers. But Hulu has yet to disclose whether the FremantleMedia pact, announced in March, has yielded sales.

Having premiered June 4 on Hulu, “Spoilers” features the “Clerks” helmer interviewing guests about the latest summer blockbusters. The series will begin running day-and-date with Hulu online starting July 9 at Space’s website, Spacecast.com, in addition to a TV window that will kick in July 27.

“Spoilers” is part of a Hulu slate of originals that includes “Got Next” and “Up To Speed.”
