Kevin Smith is getting hyped for this season's blockbusters.
Looking to capitalize on the summer, Hulu has revealed its programming for the season, which will feature the new original movie-centric series "Spoilers" with Smith, as well as two other original series and seven Hulu exclusive shows. The programs range from comedy to sci-fi, travel to reality and magic to drama.
"I have always wanted to do a show that provides an open forum for real fans to discuss real movies in real time and that's what 'Spoilers' is about. As a filmmaker and lover of movies, I understand that ultimately it's the fans who make the film. So in this show, we do not review movies, we revere them," Smith said in a statement.
"Spoilers" can be seen on Hulu on Mondays beginning June 4.
