Yahoo is quickly winning over fans of beloved series. The streaming service's Yahoo Screen is in talks to revive critical darling Enlisted for a second season.
After reviving cult hit Community for a sixth season, Yahoo is in talks with Enlisted producers 20th Century Fox Television to revive Fox's canceled military comedy. Sources tell THR that both sides have been working on a deal for more than a month, though there are still financial issues to work out before — and if — a deal is to be completed.
Following its Community renewal, Yahoo chief marketing officer Kathy Savitt, who has been leading the tech firm's push into originals, told THR that the company is "passionate about giving a home to the best storytellers." "We tend to be very open-minded to where those great stories come from," she said. "Sometimes that will be from A-list writers, sometimes it'll be from studios, sometimes it'll be from those young nascent voices that you see doing incredible things elsewhere on the Internet, and sometimes it'll be from brands."
