Hulu Original Series The Wrong Mans

Hulu isn’t letting Netflix reap all the rewards for producing original content. Bloomberg reports that Hulu is planning to release its own original series that will be available to Hulu Plus subscribers, starting this fall with a show called The Wrong Mans that Bloomberg describes as “a comedy about two office workers who become caught up in a deadly criminal conspiracy.” From there, the company plans to release “20 exclusive and original series this year” with the goal of releasing 40 original series over the next two years. Netflix has shown that online content providers can have success with their own original shows, as House of Cards, Arrested Development and Orange is the New Black have been hits with critics and audiences.
