Reality-television producer Mark Burnett is teaming up with AOL to produce comedic videos based on CliffsNotes.

Remember CliffsNotes? They're study guides of the classics that students use when they haven't read the books for class. There are 300 titles in the series.

The publisher of CliffsNotes says he wants to broaden their appeal to students, and AOL has been on a drive to produce more video content.

The first CliffsNotes videos will include Shakespeare's "Macbeth," "Hamlet," and "Romeo and Juliet."
