Online Service Plans First Original Scripted Series

LOS ANGELES — Hulu will broadcast its first original scripted series next month, a political comedy that debuts during the real-life Republican presidential primary.

"Battleground" is a look at the inner workings of a Democratic primary campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in Wisconsin. It was created by J.D. Walsh, an actor who had once worked for Sen. John Kerry.

"We see what J.D. sees in it and we know the audience is there," said Hulu's senior vice president of content, Andy Forsell. Hulu is based in Los Angeles.

Hulu's foray into original scripted programming follows its investment in producing the Morgan Spurlock documentary series, "A Day in the Life," which debuted in August.

The shows will be available on both the free and paid versions of Hulu.
