Hulu has added 10 new series to its slate, including Spoilers, a new half-hour show about movies hosted by Clerks writer/director Kevin Smith. Other additions to the digital video company's stable of series include the previously announced Up to Speed by Dazed and Confused filmmaker Richard Linklater, and scripted comedy We Got Next.

Smith's take on the traditional movie-review show is predictably unconventional. “I have always wanted to do a show that provides an open forum for real fans to discuss real movies in real time, and that’s what Spoilers is about," Smith said in a statement. "As a filmmaker and lover of movies, I understand that ultimately it’s the fans who make the film. So in this show, we do not review movies; we revere them."

Hulu also has several U.S. premieres ready to drop. There's Rev., a new series about a vicar (In the Loop star Tom Hollander) who moves from a rural parish to inner-city London (that one's from BBC Worldwide Americas); HBO Canada mockumentary The Yard; and a new series called Derren Brown: Inside Your Mind from titular mentalist Brown.

The rest of the slate is taken up with Pramface, about pregnant teenagers; The Promise, a drama about the Middle East conflict; and Little Mosque, a comedy that follows a Muslim community who rent out the parish hall of a small-town church.
