Hulu is beginning to really ramp up their original content, with the acquisition of The Mindy Project (after FOX cancelled it) and several upcoming shows like The Way (starring Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, Hannibal’s Hugh Dancy and True Detective’s Michelle Monaghan) and the event series 11/22/63, based on the Stephen King novel, from executive producer J.J. Abrams and starring James Franco.
Today, at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, Hulu revealed they will now be releasing episodes of their new series on a weekly basis, no longer following the pattern set by Netflix of releasing an entire season at once.
Said Hulu’s Craig Erwich, to the room of TV journalists, “With all of our new originals, we will release episodes weekly. We want to give viewers the opportunity to discover their favorite shows every week. Like you, we value the shared experience and the joy of the watercooler that is television. This will also allow us to get the shows out to our audiences faster without waiting until full series completion. And we want to give you, the writers, time to discover and hopefully celebrate these shows as well. And don’t forget, with an on demand service like Hulu, once a series airs, all episodes will be available at once for many years to come as part of our collection.”
The Mindy Project: Season 4’s season premiere will debut September 15th on Hulu, followed October 7th by Casual, a new comedy executive produced by Jason Reitman. 11/22/63 and The Way will debut sometime in 2016. / Source
