Friday RewindThe week started off with news that web network Revision3 is dipping its foot in the scripted side of the web series pool, snatching up Web Zeroes as its first scripted web series. PG Porn creator James Gunn returned with his latest web series, Humanzee, one that no doubt riles up the Jane Goodall set. It’s offensive, sure, a little too offensive for its original patrons XBox Live and Spike.com. But as web video evangelist Tim Street would say, it succeeds in stirring up those multiple emotions.

Sony’s zombie-com web series Woke Up Dead came out with early numbers yesterday, announcing that it had 1.4 million streams on Crackle.com in just ten days since its premiere. And yet-to-be-released Mercury Men is already getting people worked up in anticipation, releasing a behind the scenes look at the sci-fi series’ production design. It even had us speculating that it might be an early Streamy Awards favorite in that category.

Next week kicks off the fall version of Web Television Week, headlined by the Tubefilter Hollywood Web TV Meetup on Monday. We have been graciously thanking our sponsors—AMD, Ooyala, Sony Creative Software and Blip.tv—who really support the creative web series community that gets bigger every day. Show them some love and find out more about them.
