Hulu and Marvel Team on Four Adult Animated Series - Including 'Howard the Duck'

During its presentation at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour today, Hulu announced a new partnership with Marvel that will include four adult animated series - including Howard the Duck, Tigra & Dazzler, M.O.D.O.K. and Hit-Monkey. Moreover, all four shows will then meet up in an animated special titled The Offenders.

M.O.D.O.K. centers around an egomaniacal supervillain with a really big head and a really little body, who struggles to maintain control of his evil organization and his demanding family.

Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt are writers and executive producers.

Hit-Monkey tells the tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin, as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo underworld in this darkly cinematic and brutally funny revenge saga.

Josh Gordon and Will Speck are writing and executive producing.

Tigra & Dazzler is a story about two woke superheroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, as they fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles.

Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler are the writers and executive producers.

Howard the Duck is trapped in a world he never made, but America's favorite fighting fowl hopes to return home with the help of his unstoppable gal pal Beverly before the evil Dr. Bong can turn him into the crispiest dish on the menu.

Kevin Smith and Dave Willis are writing and executive producing.

The Offenders follows MODOK, Dazzler, Tigra, Hit-Monkey and Howard the Duck as they are all forced to team up in order to save the world and certain parts of the universe.

The head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb will serve as an executive producer on all of the shows and the special.
