HULU PICKS UP "PLEASE LIKE ME" SEASON FOUR

Latest Season of the Critically Acclaimed Australian Comedy Series Finds a Home on Hulu

SANTA MONICA (December 07, 2016) - Hulu has partnered with Participant Media to bring the latest season of critically acclaimed, award-winning comedy series Please Like Me to the U.S. exclusively on Hulu. The series, which previously aired on television network Pivot, will debut its fourth season in the U.S. on Hulu early next year.

After closing a deal for the exclusive SVOD rights to the series earlier this year, Hulu became the streaming home for fans to catch up on Please Like Me in the U.S. Through the new agreement, all six episodes of the latest season of Please Like Me, as well as the complete series to date, will be available to stream, only on Hulu.

"Thank you Hulu for rescuing our lovely little show! I hope you Americans enjoy it as much you enjoy soda," said Josh Thomas, creator, writer and star.

Inspired by the standup comedy and real-life experiences of Creator and Star Josh Thomas, Please Like Me is a charming, semi-autobiographical award-winning series about a boy, his dog and the parents, friends and lovers who rely on him. Season four of the series returns with its unique blend of honest comedy and bitter sweet drama. Josh has had it up to here with things ending. And now as he faces an empty house, coupled-up friends and a flagging love life that even a threesome can't seem to fix, maybe his youth is ending and he'll have to face the idea of growing up.

A fixture on the top ten lists of TV critics around the world, Please Like Me has been described by the Associated Press as "'Seinfeld' blended with a guy-centric 'Girls,'" and "the best original Australian TV comedy ever."

Returning cast for season four - in addition to creator and star Josh Thomas - includes Debra Lawrance in her AACTAAward-winning role of Mum, David Roberts (Dad), Thomas Ward (Tom), Emily Barclay (Ella),Keegan Joyce (Arnold), Renee Lim (Mae), Caitlin Stasey (Claire) and Hannah Gadsby (Hannah), with special guest appearances from Wade Briggs (Geoffrey), Gina Riley (Donna),Geoff Morrell (Bruce) and Deborah Mailman, Tim Campbell, Jackson Gallagher and Mark Coles-Smith.

Please Like Me, a Participant Media Original Series, is a Pigeon Fancier and John & Josh International Production, produced in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. The series is written by Josh Thomas, Thomas Ward and Liz Doran, with additional writing by Hannah Gadsby. Season four of Please Like Me is directed by Josh Thomas and Matthew Saville, produced by Todd Abbott and Lisa Wang, and executive produced by Todd Abbott, Josh Thomas and Kevin Whyte. The series is also executive produced by Rick Kalowski and Brett Sleigh for the ABC, and Jeff Skoll, Belisa Balaban and Chris Loveall for Participant Media.
