Yahoo 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.
