HULU RENEWS "DIFFICULT PEOPLE" FOR SEASON TWO

Hit Amy Poehler-produced Comedy Starring Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner from Universal Cable Productions will return for Second Season on Hulu

SANTA MONICA, CA - August 27, 2015 - Hulu Original Difficult People has been picked up for a second season, the company announced today. Season two will include a 10-episode order. Following a critically acclaimed debut, the breakout comedy series from executive producers Amy Poehler (Parks & Recreation), Dave Becky (Louie), Tony Hernandez of Jax Media and showrunner Scott King will return for a second season with creator, star and executive producer Julie Klausner and star Billy Eichner. The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions (UCP), a division of NBCUniversal.

"We have been big fans of Difficult People from day one and are so happy to have Julie and Billy be part of the Hulu family. I cannot wait to see what a whole new season will bring and am pleased to bring more of their hilarious brand of comedy to fans," said Craig Erwich, SVP, Head of Content, Hulu.

"From our first meeting with Julie, Billy and Amy, to the spec pilot we shot with them, to Hulu's spectacular and ongoing commitment, this has been a dream of a show. And I'm not just saying that because I'm afraid of them," said Jeff Wachtel, President, Universal Cable Productions and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.

Difficult People hails from Julie Klausner (Billy on the Street) who stars alongside Emmy(R)-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 and King wrote all episodes of season one and will continue to serve as executive producers for the series.

"I'm the luckiest girl in the world to be able to make more episodes of Difficult People," said Klausner. "This must be what it feels like to win the lottery, have a fast metabolism or win an Oscar for My Cousin Vinny."

The second season of Difficult People comes to Hulu in collaboration with Universal Cable Productions. Amy Poehler's Paper Kite Productions in conjunction with Dave Becky's 3 Arts Entertainment and Jax Media will continue to produce the series.

Hulu's growing slate of original programming includes straight-to-series pick-up orders for The Way (wt), a drama series from Jason Katims' True Jack Productions starring Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan and Hugh Dancy; CASUAL, a comedy series from Jason Reitman; 11/22/63, an original event series from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, based on Stephen King's best-selling book and starring James Franco; season four of the acclaimed comedy series The Mindy Project; and RocketJump: The Show from YouTube sensation and star and creator of Videogame High School, Freddie Wong.
