It Could Be Worse, the comedic web series cocreated by Broadway alums Wesley Taylor (The Addams Family, Smash) and Mitchell Jarvis (Rock of Ages) has been acquired by Hulu for its second season. The series will be available on the Hulu Plus subscription service as well as the free, ad-supported Hulu. Viewers will be able to stream the entire first season and the premiere episode of the second season beginning July 17. Season one of the series can also be seen on the cable network PIVOT as part of Gay Pride.
Taylor and Jarvis raised over $60,000 to produce season two of It Could Be Worse through a successful Kickstarter campaign they launched in fall 2013. Described as a "twisted dramedy," the show features Taylor as a struggling actor named Jacob Gordon who finds himself stuck in a love triangle with characters played by Gideon Glick (Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark) and Adam Chanler-Berat (Peter and the Starcatcher).
"Mitch and I were beyond thrilled that our little web series was gonna be on television, but to have both seasons stream on Hulu is thrilling," Taylor told TheaterMania. "We have worked extremely hard for this, so it does feel rewarding. I cannot thank the fans enough for funding the second season, and for all the love. We cannot WAIT to share Season Two. It's a wild ride!"
