Community in talks for a future with Hulu

Axed by NBC but could Community be revived on digital platforms?

2014-05-29_1709US comedy Community, which was axed by NBC earlier this month, has a glimmer of hope with reports Hulu is in talks with producers Sony Pictures TV for more.

Deadline reports conversations are preliminary and it’s “unclear whether they would lead to a deal, but I hear there is will on both sides.”

Creator Dan Harmon has previously indicated he had warmed to the possibility of continuing the show elsewhere.

Digital platform Hulu signalled an aggressive expansion into original programming at its Upfronts last month, whilst Sony TV has a good track record in reviving cancelled series, including Damages via DirecTV, Drop Dead Diva on Lifetime and Unforgettable on CBS.

Hulu is not formally available in Australia, but previously-produced digital seasons such as Arrested Development and House of Cards have been sold to Foxtel.
