Saturday Night Live head writer Seth Meyers came to TCA Summer TV Press Tour 2013 this morning to plug Hulu’s first original animated comedy The Awesomes, which he co-created with Late Night With Jimmy Fallon EP Michael Shoemaker. The new series, produced by Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video, is about the greatest superhero team in history — after its A-listers bail and it has to re-staff with reject superheroes. You’ll recognize voices of SNL cast and alums including Kenan Thompson, Bill Hader, Emily Spivey, Bobby Moynihan, Taran Killam, Rachel Dratch, and Paula Pell. Meyers, who will remain on SNL through the fall season (Fallon’s scheduled to replace Jay Leno on Tonight Show following the Winter Olympics in February) was asked how he’s juggling three gigs. “We’re in the very early stages on Late Night.
