Hulu Plus gets a bad rap when compared to Netflix and sometimes Amazon Prime, but the service does stream a few good movies and TV shows. Today, Hulu released its fall slate of premiere dates for Hulu exclusive shows and movies.
Most notably, a new Beatles documentary titled The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years will be released on Hulu on Saturday, Sept. 17. Directed and produced by actor-turned-director Ron Howard, the documentary will explore the band’s beginnings, the quartet’s group dynamic (including their personalities), how they made decisions, their process for creating music and how they worked together. Watch the trailer here.
Season five of Mindy Kaling’s The Mindy Project will also be available to stream on Tuesday, Oct. 4. The show was dropped by Fox in 2015 but later picked up by Hulu for its fourth season.
Hulu will also introduce three new shows: Chance, Freakish and Shut Eye. Chance is a psychological thriller about a forensic neuropsychiatrist and is set to be released on Wednesday, Oct. 19. Freakish, also premiering in October, is a horror series about high school students trying to survive in a town riddled with mutants after a meltdown at a nearby chemical plant. Shut Eye, which will be available for streaming starting Wednesday, Dec. 7, is about a failed magician, Charlie Haverford, who now owns a chain of fortune-telling storefronts.
