Whoopi Goldberg Plans Online Horror Series

It seems like not-so long ago, the only alternative performers had to starring in big screen feature-length movies was to head to television and star in a serial drama or comedy show.

Now, the Internet is becoming yet another alternative - a third option for actors, actresses and filmmakers to utilize their talents and express themselves.

It used to be just a playground for the "little guy," but it's quickly becoming a respectable companion to theatrical studio films and television productions, and numerous Hollywood-types are taking advantage.

Announced a couple of days ago, Whoopi Goldberg will executive produce and play the lead character in a new science-fiction miniseries called Stream, which will debut next month on the Internet.

The Oscar-winning actress and co-host of ABC's The View will star as Jodi, a woman trying to come to terms with her lifelong fears, reports Variety.

The series, airing in six five-minute weekly segments, will debut online at and on video-on-demand beginning Jan. 15.

This will be the sixth original series for FEARnet, which is a joint venture between Comcast, Sony Pictures Television and Lionsgate.
