Well, that didn't take long! Looks like fans of The Mindy Project have reason to rejoice today!
Hulu announced today that it has ordered season four - 26 new episodes - of the critically acclaimed series The Mindy Project. The series will join Hulu’s Original Programming slate in a new agreement with Universal Television.
Hulu has closed a deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution for the exclusive subscription video on demand rights to new and upcoming FX and FXX primetime comedy, drama and miniseries in a new, multi-year agreement for FX Networks’ series produced or co-produced by FX Productions (FXP).
The deal will make Hulu the subscription video on-demand (SVOD) home to the largest selection of FX Networks content available through tablets, smartphones, gaming platforms and other internet-connected devices. Current season FX Networks series will remain available via the FXNOW app to authenticated subscribers through their MVPD provider.
Hulu today announced a straight-to-series pick-up of Difficult People from executive producers Amy Poehler (Parks & Recreation) and Dave Becky (Louie). The half-hour comedy series marks the first collaboration between Hulu and Universal Cable Productions and is set to start production early next year.
Difficult People hails from Julie Klausner (Billy on the Street) who stars alongside Emmy®-nominated Billy on the Street host Billy Eichner. As best friends living in New York City, their typical, irreverent behavior lands them in some very awkward situations. Klausner wrote the pilot and will also serve as an executive producer for the series.
In addition to the 7th (and final) season of Parks and Recreation, Poehler and recently announced new partner Brooke Posch’s Paper Kite Productions produces the hit shows Broad City on Comedy Central and NBC’s Welcome to Sweden.
Hulu has given a ten episode straight-to-series order to CASUAL, a single-camera, half-hour comedy series from Lionsgate Television to be executive-produced by Oscar® nominated director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Juno), series writer Zander Lehmann and Reitman’s production partner Helen Estabrook (Whiplash, Young Adult), the company announced today. CASUAL will debut on Hulu in 2015, with Reitman set to direct the premiere episode.
CASUAL follows the story of a dysfunctional family with a bachelor brother and his newly divorced sister. Together, they coach each other through the crazy world of dating (on-line and off), while living under one roof again and raising a teenager.
