We’ve gotten word that Strike.TV, the delayed network of shows put together by Hollywood types during the writers’ strike, will launch a private beta next week. If you want to get in on the beta, sign up by Monday on the landing page.
STRIKE.TV behind-the-scenes: HOUSE POOR from StrikeTV on Vimeo.
Strike.TV will offer web shows from the likes of Saturday Night Live, The Office, The Daily Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live and more. Here’s the line-up that’s been released. There’s lots of blog posts and behind-the-scenes footage from the shows here (see a promo above by Mindy Kaling, who BTW was a senior at my college when I was a freshman, which kind of makes me feel like we have a connection even if we don’t, but I still watch all her stuff).
We don’t quite know what the hold-up is, or why everything needs to be released at the same time — c’mon, if you need tech help I’m sure you could find a better platform than LiveJournal! — but I’m sure I’m not the only one who’ll be watching to see what these stars can do on the web.
