Wilmington-based TV show “Hollywood East” finished its first season and is gearing up for its debut on Hulu.com. The final installment of the 10-episode season aired Oct. 31, 2010, guest starring former “Party of Five” and “7th Heaven” star, Jeremy London.

In the episode, London plays a record label owner amidst a town full of up-and-coming musicians and models. London’s other recent projects include shooting the fourth season of “Celebrity Rehab” with Dr. Drew. London joined the cast of “Celebrity Rehab” following his alleged kidnapping where he says he was held against his will and forced to take drugs earlier this year. Season 4 of “Celebrity Rehab” is scheduled to air in December on VH1.

“Jeremy was a really cool guy and easy to work with. I think his character and storyline will give the finale a great close,” producer Matt Hacker told RadarOnline.com in an interview dating back to July, in the wake of the kidnapping and drug scandal.

“Hollywood East” is no stranger to ‘90s TV stars. Jodie Sweetin, most famous for her longstanding role as Stephanie Tanner on “Full House,” appeared as herself in two episodes early in the season.

“Hollywood East” is currently on MavTV (Time Warner Cable channel 1328 in Wilmington, N.C.) and also airs in over 100 countries worldwide. By the end of November, full episodes of “Hollywood East” will be available on hulu.com, the popular website where fans can legally watch their favorite shows and movies on demand without the annoyance of lengthy commercial interruptions.

“We’re heading to California soon, and hopefully we’ll be picked up for a second season,” said producer Tyler Skipper. Fans who don’t subscribe to MavTV will be able to stay up to date with new “Hollywood East” episodes by watching them on their laptops and mobile devices on Hulu.com.

Fans can also stay up to date on “Hollywood East” news by “liking” the show on Facebook.
