Hulu is getting into the individual episodic anthology game.

The streaming service is developing comedic anthology Bitches, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Based on the Brazilian series As Canalhas, Bitches is described as a racy comedy anthology that showcases a different woman each week confiding her dirty deeds and misadventures to her hair stylist. These include stories of confronting dominant husbands, turning the tables on frenemies and finding sweet vengeance after being cruelly pushed to the edge.

The comedy is written by Nzingha Stewart and G.L. Lambert and hails from Ben Stiller's Red Hour banner. Stiller, Nicky Weinstock, Jonathan Krauss, Fernanda Torturra and Stuart Cornfeld are set to exec produce.

Stewart has emerged as one of TV's hottest directors of late, helming episodes of Pretty Little Liars, The Fosters, The Game, UnREAL and has Major Crimes, How to Get Away With Murder and Grey's Anatomy in the pipeline. She's repped by Paradigm, Management 360 and Hirsch Wallerstein.

Bitches marks the latest individual episodic anthology series in the works following the critical success of Black Mirror, with new episodes of the latter in the works at Netflix.
