In less than two years, Hulu has distributed 25 Hulu Original and Exclusive Series, offering viewers distinctive premium programming that can’t be seen anywhere else from top creative talent and 2013 is gearing up to be another great year for exclusive and original programming on Hulu. It’s a thrill to share what we have planned, including a new slate of Original and Exclusive Series that’s chock full of superheroes-in-training, rogue French cops, high-energy mascots and more. All shows will be available on free Hulu.com and the Hulu Plus subscription service.
Hulu’s original programming returns later this summer with our first animated Hulu Original Series “The Awesomes,” co-created by Saturday Night Live’s head writer Seth Meyers and Emmy-winning producer and SNL alum Michael Shoemaker(“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon“). In our second co-production with BBC via BBC Worldwide Americas, Hulu will also present “The Wrong Mans,” a comedic thriller created by and starring Tony Award-winner James Corden (“Gavin and Stacey”) and Mathew Baynton (“Spy“), directed and produced by Jim Field Smith (“Episodes”). We will also debut docu-series “Behind the Mask” which explores the secret world of sports mascots. The project is created by Emmy award-winning filmmaker Josh Greenbaum and produced by Felipe Marino and Joe Neurater’s Occupant Entertainment.
We’ve built a steady library of some of the best shows from around the world, and 2013 will be no different. Hulu Exclusive Series that will premiere on Hulu this year include “Mother Up!” with Eva Longoria, French crime thriller “Braquo,” the second seasons of hit Israeli series “Prisoners of War,” britcoms “Pramface” and “Fresh Meat,” and the fourth season of cult reality drama “The Only Way is Essex” (“TOWIE”).
