Tom Hanks Brings “Electric City” to Yahoo

More new blood for Yahoo, this time in the form of a Hollywood star: Tom Hanks and his Playtone productions are creating an animated series for the Web giant. Hanks will also star in “Electric City,” which Yahoo is describing as an “action-packed sci-fi adventure series,” which will run for a total of 90 minutes — across 20 three- to five-minute episodes — and will kick off this spring. Yahoo says the show will feature all sorts of cross-platform interactive bells and whistles.
