Yahoo intros its first two TV comedy series

Yahoo announced two original comedy series today - its first among a planned lineup of shows. The company nabbed a strategic partnership with some of the wittiest and talented writers in the industry, as well as heavyweight producers and directors.

The two shows are "Other Space" and "Sin City Saints." Yahoo is launching them next year through its Yahoo Screen video-sharing website and Yahoo Screen mobile app. They will be made available as 30-minute episodes, the company said in a statement today.

Other Space is written by Paul Feig, the acclaimed creator of "Freaks and Geeks" and director of popular shows including "The Office" and "Arrested Development." It's a space adventure series about a spaceship on a mission to explore an alternate universe.

Meanwhile, "Sin City Saints" is directed by Mike Tollin and Bryan Gordon. The series revolves around a Silicon Valley tycoon named Jake Tullus whose lifelong dream is to buy a pro basketball team. Sin City Saints will follow the triumphs, travails, and transgressions of Las Vegas’ first major league sports franchise, Yahoo said.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
