Hulu Orders Two New Marvel Series and Drama ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’

The Streamer Announces Upfront Initiatives at its NewFront Presentation in New York City

In an expanded partnership, Marvel Television will bring two new live-action series to Hulu, with “Marvel’s Ghost Rider” and “Marvel’s Helstrom” slated to debut on Hulu in 2020.

The logline: Marvel’s Ghost Rider, also known as Robbie Reyes, is a quintessential antihero, consumed by hellfire and supernaturally bound to a demon. Reyes lives on the Texas/Mexico border and when he unleashes the Rider, Robbie brings vengeance for the innocents he encounters, but struggles to control the power he wields. Marvel’s Ghost Rider is executive produced by Ingrid Escajeda, who will serve as showrunner, Paul Zbyszewski and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.

Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer in “Marvel’s Helstrom.” The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity — each with their attitude and skills. “Marvel’s Helstrom” is executive produced by Paul Zbyszewski, who will serve as showrunner and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.

Hulu willalso partner with Vox Media Studios, David Chang’s Majordomo Media, and Chrissy Teigen’s Suit & Thai Productions to develop and produce a slate of food-centric programming for the platform. Among the first projects being produced by this new partnership is a cooking show featuring Chang and Teigen. Tentatively titled “Family Style,” the show will revolve around the ways in which people express their love for friends and family by cooking and eating together. Also in the pipeline is a documentary series tentatively titled “Eater’s Guide To The World,” which taps into Eater’s extensive knowledge of the most interesting and delicious restaurants on the planet.

Hulu has also given a straight-to-series order for “Nine Perfect Strangers,” which reunited Nicole Kidman and producer and writer David E. Kelley. The series takes place at a boutique health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and transformation as nine stressed city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. Watching over them during this ten-day retreat is the resort’s director Masha (played by Kidman), a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies. However, these nine “perfect” strangers have no idea what is about to hit them.
