Hulu Orders Revenge Drama Pilot 'Reprisal' From 'Handmaid's Tale' Producer
Hulu has ordered a new drama pilot.
The streaming service has greenlit Reprisal, a revenge tale from A+E Studios production and The Littlefield Company. Handmaid's Tale producer Warren Littlefield and Barry Jossen will executive produce the project.
Reprisal is described as a hyper-kinetic revenge tale following a relentless femme fatale who, after being left for dead, leads a vengeful campaign against a bombastic gang of gearheads. Josh Corbin (StartUp) will write the drama, as well as co-executive produce, while Jonathan Van Tulleken (Movie 43) will direct the project.
Should the pilot be ordered to series, Reprisal would join a rapidly growing roster of dramas at Hulu including Looking for Alaska, Little Fires Everywhere, The Looming Tower and Emmy winner The Handmaid's Tale.
