Hulu reached the 4 million subscriber mark in the first quarter of this year, acting CEO Andy Forssell announced on the company blog today.

Besides touting its growing subscriber base and its billion streams milestone, Hulu presented to advertisers today its slate of original content that current interim CEO Forssell announced on the company blog earlier this year such as “The Awesomes” and “Mother Up!” In addition, the video streaming site also announced on its blog two new original series, “Quickdraw,” a comedy western set in 1870s Kansas and high school drama “East Los High.”
