Hulu acquires SVoD rights for ‘Unreal’
MUMBAI: US premium streaming TV destination Hulu has acquired the exclusive subscription video on-demand rights to Lifetime’s drama series from A+E Studios, ‘Unreal’.
All episodes of season one will become available to stream through Hulu’s ‘No Commercial and Limited Commercials’ plan beginning 3 February. Future seasons of the series will become available to stream on Hulu following their initial season run on Lifetime.
Season two stirs up the controversy when Everlasting casts its first-ever African American suitor.
Set against the backdrop of a fictional dating show, ‘Unreal’ provides a look at just how far producers could go behind-the-scenes to make drama on screen.
The series is led by Rachel Goldberg, a young staffer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with, and amongst the show’s contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage that the programme’s dispassionate executive producer Quinn King demands. ‘Unreal’ also stars Craig Bierko as Everlasting’s eccentric creator, Chet; and Freddie Stroma as the dating show’s handsome and intelligent suitor, Adam Cromwell.
The new deal expands Hulu’s relationship with the A+E Networks company. In a previous deal, Hulu and A+E Networks struck a licensing agreement that brought a list of hundreds of A+E Networks’ library episodes to the streaming service. The non-exclusive deal has made full seasons of titles including ‘Project Runway’, ‘Project Runway All Stars’ and ‘Storage Wars’.
