NBC’s ‘quarterlife’ brings Internet to television

When NBC's new hour-long drama "quarterlife" debuts Tuesday, it will be a relatively groundbreaking event. For the first time, a broadcast network will air a series that was first introduced on the Internet. (Msnbc.com is a joint venture between Microsoft and NBC Universal.)

The network is taking the show's 36 "webisodes," which are airing online at quarterlife.com and a few other sites, and turning them into a six-episode TV season.

It's a notable moment in entertainment and could be a harbinger of things to come. But if recent history is any proof, we're still a long way from seeing a swarm of shows arrive on the small screen via the computer monitor.
