Original content development continues to boom online with news of Hulu partnering with BBC for the new six-part comedy series "The Wrong Mans." Borrowing some Hitchcockian phobia (and referencing the master of suspense's 1956 Henry Fonda-starrer), the show centers on two bottom-rung office workers (James Corden and Matthew Baynton) caught up in a deadly criminal conspiracy after one of them answers ye olde ringing telephone at the site of a car crash.

Corden is best-known for co-creating, co-writing and starring in the BBC sitcom "Gavin & Stacey," for which he won a BAFTA; Baynton had a co-starring role on the show. "Butter" and "She's Out of My League" director Jim Field Smith is set to helm the series.

Meanwhile, Hulu Plus has the kiddies in mind with its most recent programming addition, effective today: current-season Nickelodeon programming is now available for online streaming, making Hulu the only subscription-based VOD provider offering the channel's newest episodes.
