Hulu’s premium service inked the deal to carry the show before Sunday night’s premiere episode aired, the first time Hulu has made such an agreement, the streaming service said in a blog post on Monday morning.
New episodes of Manhattan will be available on Hulu Plus every Monday, following the show’s Sunday night airing on WGN America. Ultimately, all 13 episodes of the show’s first season will be available on Hulu Plus.
Meanwhile, the five most recently broadcast episodes of Manhattan will be available on the free version of Hulu, three days after they air.
Manhattan, WGN America’s second original scripted series, focuses on the mission to build the world’s first atomic bomb in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins has made exclusive content a focus for the company, as it competes with Amazon and Netflix to attract and retain subscribers. Hulu Plus has already snapped up exclusive rights to The Mindy Project, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Nashville, Elementary and South Park.
