How Hulu Is Becoming A Testbed For New TV Shows

Shows produced by Hulu will soon find their way onto traditional TV networks in the U.K. and elsewhere, thanks to a distribution deal between the TV catch-up site and FremantleMedia Enterprises.

The deal, which was announced Sunday night, gives Fremantle an exclusive first look at shows like Morgan Spurlock’s documentary series A Day in the Life, which Hulu is bringing back for a second season on Monday. It’s an interesting business proposition for Hulu, and it further establishes the site as a testbed for new TV content.
