Yahoo! is about to make a big jump into the entertainment business. The Internet behemoth is poised to launch a slate of new TV-style shows, reports Variety–including one by Oscar-nominated documentarian Morgan Spurlock. Niecy Nash and Judy Greer will also be among a group of new hosts helming original shows online.
[Spurlock] will host and produce “The Failure Club,” which follows 10 adults as they try to get past their fear of failure and take on various challenges, such as a banker looking to break into standup comedy.
Greer, a character actor best known for comedic roles, hosts “Healthy Gal: A Work in Progress,” which takes a lighthearted approach toward exploring how best to stay fit while on the road.
Nash, meanwhile, will host a comedic, relationship-oriented show called “Let’s Talk About Love.” The topics of each show will apparently be mined from Yahoo!’s massive trove of user-gathered data.
