HULU LOCKS IN EXCLUSIVE SVOD RIGHTS TO HIT COMEDY SERIES "FRESH OFF THE BOAT"

New Deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution Includes All Past and Future Seasons of ABC's Popular Sitcom, and adds full libraries of The Carmichael Show and The Exorcist

SANTA MONICA, CA [May 19, 2017] - In a new licensing agreement with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution, Hulu has acquired the exclusive subscription streaming video on-demand rights to the complete library of ABC's hit comedy series, Fresh Off the Boat. All past episodes of the series - including the complete third season - are now available to stream exclusively on Hulu and future episodes will stream the day after they air on ABC.

Through the library deal, Hulu also becomes the exclusive streaming home to FOX's recently-renewed thriller, The Exorcist, and gains streaming rights to past episodes of NBC's critically-acclaimed comedy series The Carmichael Show. All episodes of both The Exorcist and The Carmichael Show are now available to stream in their entirety on Hulu.

On the heels of its critically-acclaimed season three finale this week, Fresh Off the Boat is the first prime-time network sitcom in more than 20 years to feature an all-Asian American cast, with stars Randall Park, Constance Wu, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler and Ian Chen. Since its first season, the series has drawn acclaim from critics and fans, garnered multiple award nominations, and has maintained steady viewership for the past three seasons. Production on its fourth season will commence later this summer.

"With its funny and poignant storytelling, Fresh Off the Boat is a perfect addition to our growing offering of the biggest comedies on TV today," said Lisa Holme, Hulu's Head of Content Acquisition. "We are thrilled to be the streaming home to the complete series, as well as even more series from Fox.

"We are extremely excited that Fresh Off the Boat will now be available to Hulu's subscribers," said Evan Scheffel, Executive Vice President, The Americas, 20th Century Fox TV Distribution. "We've always believed this show's unique and comical point of view on American life was deserving of as wide an audience as possible. We are happy that Hulu subscribers will be able to watch this fun, funny, family friendly show from its inception."

Fresh Off the Boat is inspired by Chef Eddie Huang's memoir Fresh Off the Boat, and follows 12 year old, hip-hop loving Eddie (Hudson Yang) who moved to suburban Orlando from DC's Chinatown with his parents (Randall Park and Constance Wu). Fresh Off the Boat is written by Nahnatchka Khan, who also serves as executive producer and showrunner. Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar are executive producers, and the series is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television for ABC.

The new deal follows Hulu's recently announced, groundbreaking agreement with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution that made Hulu the exclusive subscription streaming video on-demand home to this year's #1 drama series, This Is Us. Both Fresh Off the Boat and This Is Us join full libraries of world class programming now streaming exclusively on Hulu, including Empire, The Last Man on Earth, Black-ish, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Goldbergs and Homeland.
