Zuiker to debut 'Cybergeddon' movie on Yahoo

LOS ANGELES (AP) - "CSI" creator Anthony Zuiker is making a movie destined for the small screen.

The producer plans to debut the as-yet unfinished feature film, "Cybergeddon," on Yahoo in installments sometime this fall. His latest foray into online storytelling follows his partnership on a horror series for YouTube.

It also marks Yahoo's second stab at tapping Hollywood talent to create original online video. In January, Yahoo said a series of 20 animated webisodes developed by Tom Hanks called "Electric City" would debut on the site this spring.

Many Web video companies, including Hulu, YouTube and Netflix, are pushing to put more original video content online as they compete for people's attention with traditional outlets like TV channels.
