Hulu Introduces Hat Trick International’s Brit Comedy ‘Spy’ To U.S.

Hat Trick International has announced that it has entered into a content agreement with Hulu to bring a variety of popular UK television shows to the leading online video service. The deal will provide nearly 40 hours of new entertainment and comedy programming to American audiences via Hulu’s free ad supported platform as well as Hulu Plus, the company’s growing subscription service.
Hulu will be the exclusive US distributor of the highly anticipated new comedy Spy (starring Darren Boyd and Robert Lindsay) which when it launched on the UK’s Sky1, almost doubled the average audience for its primetime slot.
Additionally, Hulu will stream the massive UK hit comedy Outnumbered, the James May fronted factual entertainment series James May’s Man Lab and James May’s Toy Stories, the highly unconventional chat show The Kumars at No.42 and the award-winning comedy drama The Worst Week of My Life.
Sarah Tong, Director of Sales at Hat Trick International said: “We’re delighted that these fantastic shows will now be available to a huge US audience via Hulu. We’re embracing digital platforms which offer consumers a choice of premium content how and when they wish to watch.”
