Tom Hanks' Web series to stream on Yahoo

Tom Hanks' long gestating Web series is coming to Yahoo.
"Electric City" is an animated futuristic series that Hanks has been developing for years. The series of 20 episodes _ each three- or four-minutes long _ premieres this spring.
Yahoo formally announces its plans for the series Tuesday at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
For Hanks, the release of "Electric City" caps the actor's efforts to find the right avenue for the project. He first tried making the series using puppets, and earlier announced it would be released in early 2011.
For Yahoo, "Electric City" is its first entry into scripted original programming. Yahoo has been beefing up its online video with reality series and wrap-up news shows.
