Say it ain’t so, Seeso? Digital platform selling off key original series

A couple of weeks after laying off most if not all of its original programming department, NBCUniversal’s digital comedy platform looks ready to part ways with its original programs for Seeso, too.

My Decider colleague, Scott Porch, reported last night that Seeso had reached agreements to sell off two programs with hugely loyal fans — Dan Harmon’s Harmonquest, and the podcast-turned-series My Brother, My Brother and Me — to Otter Media.

The sale would include at least one new season of Harmonquest that has yet to air on Seeso.

Otter Media is jointly run by AT&T and the Chernin Group. Harmonquest and MBMBaM apparently would broadcast their new episodes on Otter Media’s VRV platform, according to Porch.

Seeso formally launched in January 2016, and has produced multiple stand-up specials and original sitcoms and variety programs. Among them: Bajillion Dollar Propertie$, Take My Wife, The UCB Show, Hidden America with Jonah Ray, Debate Wars, Shrink, and the upcoming There’s…Johnny!

An NBCUniversal spokesperson declined to comment to Decider about individual programs, but did acknowledge the future of Seeso as a whole remained under review.
