'Beautiful Life' lives on YouTube

Five episodes of CW's short-lived drama going on site

Canceled CW freshman drama "The Beautiful Life: TBL," executive produced by Ashton Kutcher, will end its run on YouTube.

Starting Dec. 21, the popular video-sharing site will release the two episodes that aired on the CW before the network axed it as well as the three segments that never ran.

HP has come on board to sponsor "TBL's" online run.

"When 'The Beautiful Life' concluded on broadcast television, we were deluged by fans imploring us to bring back 'TBL,'" Kutcher said. "Working with innovative companies like HP and YouTube, we are thrilled to be ending this year by releasing the remaining episodes of 'The Beautiful Life' and taking part in a unique marketing program that could only occur online."
