The Fox run, WIGS Youtube channel used to test content have taken their most successful show from the channel more mainstream. The full length episodes of the drama series, Blue can now be streamed from both Hulu and Hulu Plus.
The show which stars Julia Stiles as a single mum who earns a second income working as a prostitute has already had a successful first season and is currently in it’s second run having over 20 million views.
The WIGs scripted Youtube channel which offers original series, documentaries and short films which all have female lead characters, entered into a partnership with fox earlier this year and makes money selling advertising which is shared with Youtube.
Strangely Fox who are owned by parent company News Corp., may lose ownership of Hulu soon as they look for a suitable buyer. Front runners DirecTV have been joined today by Tivo and other interested parties include Yahoo, Microsoft and Time Warner Cable.
Blue will be followed by other WIG shows heading over to Hulu later in the year.
