Hulu has announced Oscar-nominated director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Juno) will executive produce an upcoming Hulu Original series titled Casual. In addition to as serving as executive producer, Reitman will direct the first episode of the single-camera, half-hour comedy show.
The straight-to-series 10-episode season, in partnership with Lionsgate Television, will debut on Hulu in 2015 and join other Hulu Originals such as East Los High, Quickdraw, and The Awesomes.
According to Hulu, the show “follows the story of a dysfunctional family with a bachelor brother and his newly divorced sister. Together, they coach each other through the crazy world of dating (on-line and off), while living under one roof again and raising a teenager.”
Hulu recently announced an upcoming new original mini-series based on Stephen King’s novel “11/22/63″ about the day former president John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The series will be produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions along with Warner Bros. Television.
