Today, we presented Hulu’s upcoming content slate at The Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour. It is an honor to be able to take the stage and announce what’s coming to the service this year to a room full of professional TV critics and journalists. I could not be more thrilled to announce that we are continuing the momentum this year by bringing new seasons of our beloved Originals, as well as the premiere of our brand new title ‘The Hotwives of Orlando’ and new library deals that will make Hulu’s content offering more robust and diverse than ever before.
When we look for the best of television to acquire and develop, we listen to our fans first and foremost. That is why, today, I am pleased to share that Hulu is now the exclusive home for all seasons of ‘South Park.’ This show has revolutionized TV and it has consistently remained a top 10 most-watched show on Hulu. All summer long, every episode of the series will be available on Hulu and we will be the exclusive streaming destination for season 18 when it launches on September 24th. Check out the trailer to see some of the most memorable moments from ‘South Park’ that you will now be able to watch – and re-watch – only on Hulu.
On the Hulu Originals front, we have an exciting line-up of shows coming your way. Season 2 of our breakout hit ‘East Los High’ just debuted on Hulu this week and is already building buzz. This English language show with an all-Latino cast is hands-down one of the most addictive shows on Hulu, which is why we announced today that we are renewing it for a third season. And, on July 15th, we will bring you the premiere of our highly anticipated and hilarious series ‘The Hotwives of Orlando’. We know fans are absolutely going to love this show.
In addition to bringing you ‘South Park,’ the team at Hulu has been hard at work to continue expanding our library of exclusive, current and library content. Most recently, we’ve become the exclusive home for hit series like FX’s “The Bridge” and guilty pleasures from NBCUniversal’s Bravo Media including the “Real Housewives” franchise, “Top Chef” and many more.
As we head into the summer with a full line-up of exciting, new additions to Hulu, we are proud to be able to continue delighting audiences of all different tastes, ages and backgrounds. Until then, check out the trailers for some of the new seasons coming your way. Happy watching.
