Other Space, Sin City Saints: Yahoo Orders Two Scripted TV Shows

Yahoo TV showsYahoo is getting into the television show business. The Internet company has ordered two full-length scripted comedy series, reports Variety. They will be officially announced at Yahoo’s presentation at the Digital Content NewFronts on Monday.

Other Space will revolve around a group of misfit space adventurers who stumble upon an alternate universe. The series will be executive produced by Paul Feig (Freaks & Geeks, Bridesmaids).

Sin City Saints will follow the adventures of a pro basketball expansion team from Las Vegas. Executive producer Mike Tollin (Smallville, One Tree Hill) will team with director Bryan Gordon (Curb Your Enthusiasm).

Yahoo has ordered eight half-hour episodes of each and plans to release all installments at once, ala Netflix. They’ll debut late this year and in 2015.

    Sci-fi and sports – a universe of possibilities in between that seems to have been discounted. I would certainly give both series the same chance as any other. I watched the Netflix show Lillehammer and it opened my eyes to a lot of worthless preconceptions about the value of going with the branded networks. I still enjoy it and now leave my misconceptions at the door when I go looking for entertainment.
