Hulu is prepping the three-part documentary series Sasquatch from the Emmy-winning Duplass brothers, Mark and Jay.
The series investigates the grisly deaths of three men who were found murdered in 1993, with the prime suspect being the mythical Bigfoot. The series unfolds from the perspective of journalist David Holthouse (pictured) who was in the area at the time of the murders and who revisits the scene of the crime 25 years later.
The docuseries was directed by Joshua Rofé (Lorena, Swift Current) executive produced by Mark Duplass, Jay Duplass, and Mel Eslyn of Duplass Brothers Productions (Wild Wild Country, Evil Genius), Rofé and Steven Berger of Number 19, along with David Holthouse and Zach Cregger, and produced by M. Elizabeth Hughes.
Sasquatch will launch exclusively as a Hulu documentary in the spring.
The news follows last week’s announcement that the Disney-owned streamer has inked a partnership with IF/Then Shorts, an initiative of Field of Vision, to award US$100,000 in grants to short documentary filmmakers.
The inaugural IF/Then x Hulu Documentary Lab will give US$25,000 in funding, as well as an invitation to a one-year lab focused on production and career training, to up to four doc short filmmaking teams with projects in development.
