CNN and online streaming service Hulu have inked a new content deal for six series and two films produced by the network.
The new agreement includes the films 9/11: Fifteen Years Later, a co-production with Goldfish Pictures, available now; and The End: Inside the Last Days of the Obama White House, an original film production by the network, to become available in July.
CNN Original Series previously sold streaming rights to Hulu for Race for the White House. This expanded deal for series content includes The History of Comedy (pictured); United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell; This is Life with Lisa Ling; Declassified: Untold Stories of American Spies; The Hunt with John Walsh; and Crimes of the Century.
Most of the content will become available to Hulu subscribers on a rolling basis this summer, except for The History of Comedy which will be made available this winter.
This is the first deal of its kind between CNN and Hulu for CNN Films, and the second deal with CNN Original Series, the network’s brand of nonfiction series content.
“Our goal for these content brands was to bring the strong, journalistic sensibility of CNN to premium nonfiction content,” said Amy Entelis, executive vice president for talent and content development for CNN Worldwide, in a statement. “So, we couldn’t be more pleased to partner with Hulu, which values that high-quality content proposition as well,” she added.
