Hulu and Flama, Univision’s Latino and English OTT service, have partnered to air 5 web series on Hulu.
Saving Lives will star YouTubers Josh Leyva and David Alvarez as two over-confident college guys as they lifeguard on the beach. The series, which runs over 6 episodes with a new one airing each week, kicked off Jan. 22. The rest of the titles are immediately available for binge-watching on Hulu.
Taking on America, Drop the Mic and Chachi’s Dance, all center around kids in the music industry on their respective roads to success, while The Bodega features a pair of brothers’ get-rich-quick scheming.
Flama is a multi-platform digital network that targets 15- to 30-year-olds, with English-language content made by and starring young Hispanics. The agreement is a bid by Hulu to deepen its content for Latino audiences.
