CNN Films and CNN Original Series Strike Content Deal with Hulu

New CNN Films content deal, expanded CNN Original Series deal launches with Hulu

CNN and Hulu have struck a new content deal for six series and two films produced by the network, the two companies announced today.  This is the first such deal between CNN and Hulu for CNN Films, the network’s premium brand for nonfiction documentaries, and the second deal with CNN Original Series, the network’s premium brand for nonfiction series content.

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with a trusted brand like CNN,” said Lisa Holme, Hulu’s head of content acquisition. “Their powerful story-telling is best in class and we are very happy to offer even more of their programming to Hulu viewers.”

“Our goal for these content brands was to bring the strong, journalistic sensibility of CNN to premium nonfiction content,” said Amy Entelis, executive vice president for talent and content development for CNN Worldwide.  “So, we couldn’t be more pleased to partner with Hulu, which values that high-quality content proposition as well,” Entelis said.

The new deal includes the film ‘9/11 Fifteen Years Later,’ a co-production with Goldfish Pictures, available now, and ‘The End: Inside the Last Days of the Obama White House,’ a wholly original film production by the network, to become available in July.  CNN Films, launched in 2012, marks its fifth year anniversary later this year.

CNN Original Series previously sold streaming rights to Hulu for Race for the White House from executive producers Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti.  This expanded deal for series content includes: The History of Comedy (Season 1), United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell (Seasons 1-2), This is Life with Lisa Ling (Seasons 1-3), Declassified: Untold Stories of American Spies (Season 1), The Hunt with John Walsh (Seasons 1-3), and Crimes of the Century (Season 1).  The majority of the content will become available to Hulu subscribers on a rolling basis this summer, with the exception of The History of Comedy, which will become available this winter.
