AwesomenessTV High School Comedy Series 'All Night' Lands at Hulu
AwesomenessTV and Hulu are teaming up once again.
The streamer has acquired exclusive streaming rights to a new comedy from the teen-centered digital producer, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Titled All Night, the series takes place during an overnight, lock-in graduation party in which a group of new grads will do whatever it takes to make their remaining high school dreams come true.
The cast of the half-hour includes Suburgatory alum Allie Grant, The Office's Kate Flannery and Anger Management grad Noureen DeWulf. Chris Avila, Brec Bassinger, Chanel Celaya, Ty Doran, Teala Dunn, Caleb Ray, Eva Gutowski, Tetona Jackson, Gus Kamp, Tom Maden, Jenn McAllister, Austin North, Tequan Richmond, Chester Rushing, Jake Short, Chance Sutton, and Dawan Owens round out the large ensemble.
Jason Ubaldi (Youth and Consequences) created the series, which will be directed by Brian Dannelly (Weeds, Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce). The duo will exec produce with Shelley Zimmerman, Jordan Levin, Brett Bouttier and Joe Davola. Ali Schouten is also attached as a supervising producer.
Production on the 10-episode first season began earlier this month for a 2018 bow.
This is the second AwesomenessTV series to land at Hulu. The streamer recently renewed the horror series Freakish for a second season. Hulu also holds the U.S. streaming rights to Snervous, a doc about YouTube star Tyler Oakley, and the mockumentary Janoskians: Untold and Untrue.
Earlier this year, Awesomeness announced it had scrapped its plans with Verizon to launch a streaming service that would have offered premium short-form video. Subsequently, former ABC comedy head Samie Kim Falvey departed the company. Shortly thereafter, CEO Brian Robbins stepped down as well. Former NFL executive Jordan Levin came onboard as the new CEO in May.
Hulu also brought in a new exec in May with the addition of chief content officer Joel Stillerman, formerly at AMC.
In addition to All Night, Hulu's comedy slate includes Difficult People, Casual and the upcoming Seth Rogen sci-fi series Future Man.
