- Leading over-the-top service Hulu has surpassed 20 million US subscribers, just ahead of pinning down a brace of content deals at its 2018 upfront event, including a major coup with DreamWorks Animation.
The announcement is notable given that DreamWorks has an existing exclusive agreement with Netflix, and announced last week that it will be bringing a Fast & Furious spinoff series to the OTT giant.
In addition to the DreamWorks deal, Hulu announced an exclusive streaming deal for The Good Doctor, ABC’s breakout primetime drama of the 2017-18 season, and renewed The Handmaid’s Tale or a third season.
Additional series orders include Four Weddings and a Funeral from Mindy Kaling and Ramy, a Muslim-American comedy from Ramy Youssef and Jerrod Carmichael.
