NBCUniversal is putting the finishing touches on a new entry in the increasingly crowded field of on-demand streaming services. The Wall Street Journal reports that the new offering, Seeso, is focused on comedy and will feature the talents of NBC personalities such as Jimmy Fallon.
Seeso is expected to be widely available starting in January, with a price tag of $3.99 a month.
“Beyond Mr. Fallon’s ‘Tonight Show,’ Seeso will include programming from comedian Seth Meyers, shows like ’30 Rock’ and ‘Parks and Recreation,’ and all of the ‘Saturday Night Live’ library,” WSJ reports. “It will also include three to five films a month plus a library of all the Monty Python movies, and live streamed comedy concerts once a month, the company said.”
Developed by NBCU Executive Vice President Evan Shapiro, the service will also feature original series. Shapiro “scoured both the traditional television world and the Web for the talent that will star in and produce originals,” the report notes.
