Bruce Miller is staying in the Hulu business. Or, rather, Hulu is staying in the Miller business? Either way, “The Handmaid’s Tale” showrunner has signed an overall deal with the streaming service and MGM Television.

Under the multi-year agreement, Miller will create and develop new projects for Hulu and MGM, as well as identify writers to work with him under his banner.

“‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ series would not be the creative force it is without Bruce Miller behind it,” said Beatrice Springborn, VP of content development at Hulu. “He is truly a one-of-a-kind partner and storyteller and we’re thrilled to continue our relationship with him to bring authentic, relevant and riveting stories to Hulu.”

“Bruce and I have worked together for many years and it is such a privilege for me and our team to be able to continue to work with him and Hulu,” added MGM president of television production and development Steve Stark. “His leadership, skill and brilliant vision for ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ has helped the series to transcend political and cultural boundaries and we can’t wait to see what’s next.”

“The Handmaid’s Tale” has become a critical darling after winning 8 Emmy Awards, 2 Golden Globe Awards, the Peabody Award, an AFI award and multiple Guild Awards including the Producers Guild Award after its debut season.

Miller is repped by ICM Partners and attorney Jamie Mandelbaum of Jackoway Tyerman.

New episodes of “The Handmaid’s Tale” stream Wednesdays on Hulu.
