‘Blindspot’ & ‘Lucifer’ Coming to Hulu in Multi-Year Warner Bros. Deal
Hulu announced today that it has closed a multi-year, multi-series deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution that includes the exclusive U.S. streaming video on-demand rights to the freshman hour-long dramas “Blindspot” (pictured) and “Lucifer,” which air on NBC and Fox, respectively. Episodes will premiere on Hulu following their network airings.
As part of the deal, Hulu will also get the streaming premieres to all past seasons of the drama “Rizzoli & Isles,” which has been airing on TNT since 2010, as well as the the entire runs of “Smallville” (2001–2011), “The O.C.” (2003–2007) and “Southland” (2009–2013).
Seasons one through five “Rizzoli & Isles” will stream exclusively on Hulu’s No Commercials and Limited Commercials subscription plan beginning in April, along with entire run of “The O.C.,” and the other series will roll out in the coming months.
Created by Martin Gero, “Blindspot” follows a woman (Jaimie Alexander) with no memories of her past, who’s found in Times Square with her body covered in intricate tattoos, alerting the FBI to a larger conspiracy and leading her closer to discovering the truth about her identity. Produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, it premiered on NBC in September.
Based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, “Lucifer” tells the story of the original fallen angel, Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis). Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, he has abandoned his throne and retired to Los Angeles, where he teams up with an LAPD detective (Lauren German) to help punish criminals. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Bros. Television, it debuted on Fox in January.
