if-i-can-dream-hulu-320.jpgAmerican Idol‘ creator Simon Fuller and Hulu believe they’re taking web TV to a whole new level with its first original series, “If I Can Dream,” premiering Tue. March 2 on Hulu.

The reality-ish show reminds us of something like MTV’s “The Hills” and “The City.” It revolves around five young people chasing after their dream careers in Los Angeles.

The cast (pictured above, from left) includes blond bombshell actress Kara; hot model turned actor Ben; Angelina Jolie lookalike and model Giglianne; model turned musician Justin; and Actress/Model (not sure why they need her with Kara around) Amanda.

Hulu calls the show groundbreaking in that it hopes to turn a relatively high budget web TV show into a hit by cutting out television broadcast altogether. Additionally, fans can watch the cast 24/7 at ificandream.com. Aspiring artists can also submit video auditions to the show on MySpace.

Check out the cast of “If I Can Dream” in the video below:
