Hulu has landed the exclusive streaming rights to the classic sitcom “The Golden Girls,” the streaming service announced at the TCA Winter Press Tour on Saturday.
Hulu’s head of content Craig Erwich revealed that Rose and the girls will be making their streaming debut on Hulu beginning on Feb. 13, with every episode of the series available.
The series, which ran from 1985-1992 for 177 episodes, starred Betty White, Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty. The four women starred as a quartet of divorced/widowed women who move in together in Miami.
Created by Susan Harris, the show won four Golden Globes and 11 Emmy awards during its run, in addition to being a massive ratings hit for NBC. It has been consistently ranked as one of the most popular sitcoms of all time.
Hulu has been snapping up content like crazy of late, including announcing earlier this week that they will begin streaming CBS programming on their upcoming live streaming service. That includes NFL coverage courtesy of The Eye network and popular shows like “Big Bang Theory,” “NCIS,” “Big Brother,” “Blue Bloods” and “60 Minutes,” both live and on-demand.
Hulu subscribers can currently access content from ESPN, Fox Sports, CBS Sports, TNT, ABC, CBS, FOX and The Disney Channel.
