Yahoo plans to release four original TV series, competing with Netflix and HBO

Yahoo is about to sign the incorporation of four series / TV shows that would represent original and exclusive programming for the service, thus competing with the original series that have only been broadcast on cable networks such as HBO or Netflix.

As we read on TheVerge, the shows in question would be half-hour comedies organized into 10-episode seasons, and created by writers and directors with industry experience. The initial budget that has been determined for the recording of each chapter is around 700,000 – 1,000,000 dollars.

Marisa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo, has yet to give a few details in this regard, with the clear objective of demonstrating the ability of Yahoo to create and include quality content in its programming. As always, Mayer continues to focus on video content and delivering good quality of it – remember that last year he also signed an agreement to stream Saturday Night Live episodes.

The four television shows in question would be broadcast through the Yahoo Screen, which, despite the invested budget, makes it difficult for this new programming to become a direct competitor to those series broadcast on traditional TV. Still, we will be attentive to the premiere and possible success.
