Is the future…

… of animation here?
Possibly.

But in other “future of entertainment” news, there’s a new kid on the block.
After Hulu, meet TheWB.com.

What’s that?
Oh no, the network is indeed six feet under (for 2 years now), but the brand is coming back…on the web.
On August 27, the site will launch (unfortunately only for US-based peeps, thank you geo-blocking). It is currently in Beta (as you can see by the flash vid above).

What is interesting to note is that, other than showing “known shows” like Buffy, Angel, Friends, The O.C., Smallville, Gilmore Girls, and Roswell, there will be a whole lot of original content. That’s right, shows specially developed for the web, and for the website, also aimed at the “youth demographic”. And we’re not talking about products made by nobodies, unless Josh Schwartz (among others) is unknown to you. But if that’s the case, what are you doing here reading about “youth demographic”.
It probably won’t be as good as The Doc, but it clearly shows that the future of TV is, at the very least, strongly linked to the Internet.

Welcome to the world of tomorrow.
