LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Larry King's new half hour talk show, Larry King Now, will air on Hulu and Hulu Plus with the multi-year deal made by digital network Ora.TV. The show will be available Monday through Thursday in the early evenings.
For its series premiere week, King will interview guests Seth MacFarlane, Matthew McConaughey, and Meghan McCain. Similar to Larry King Live, the show will host various celebrities, politicians, and global leaders.
"I have always been driven to innovate, from my time on radio, to the first call-in show on national television, to being an early adopter of online columns and Twitter,” says King. He adds, “I am thrilled about our partnership with Hulu. I love being able to interact directly with audiences, and digital TV allows me to do this in new and powerful ways."
Hulu senior vice president of content, Andy Forssell, made a statement saying, “Larry King Now is Larry King doing what he does best: talking with top newsmakers, world leaders and entertainers and exploring issues and current events as no other interviewer can. We're excited for our partnership with Ora TV and thrilled to bring fans a daily dose of fascinating interviews from a man whose characteristic charm and distinctive style has impacted pop culture so greatly."
King's show is one of several programs by Ora.TV to air on Hulu. This deal between the two companies was invested by billionaire Carlos Slim Helú.
Hulu has previously announced to launch programs such as Richard Linklater's Up to Speed with tour guide Timothy “Speed” Levitch, A Day in the Life, a documentary series by Morgan Spurlock, and Battleground, a political campaign dramedy series .
