FX's 'Mrs. America,' 'Devs,' 'A Teacher' and 'The Old Man' Move to Hulu

During today's earnings call for Disney, company CEO Bob Iger announced that Hulu will become the exclusive streaming home to old and new episodes of FX programming. As part of the move, a new category will be available on the service called FX on Hulu which will launch in March 2020. In addition, four series developed to air on FX in 2020 will now exclusively be available on the streamer.

The four former FX originals making the exclusive move to Hulu include Mrs. America starring Cate Blanchett, A Teacher starring Kate Mara & Nick Robinson, Devs starring Sonoya Mizuno & Nick Offerman, and The Old Man starring Jeff Bridges. 

"We're thrilled to have Hulu as our streaming partner with the creation of FX on Hulu, which will be the best and most complete representation of the FX brand, finally putting us on equal footing with competitors like HBO," said John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks. "This will allow us to expand FX's original programming lineup and to reach Hulu's growing audience of young and highly engaged subscribers, whom we believe will love these shows. We are more committed than ever to quality over quantity, with our primary focus on excellence that can cut through the clutter at a time of unprecedented consumer choice. This is a game-changing opportunity for FX, and we can't wait to embark on this journey with Randy and his great Hulu team."

"We're excited to become the official streaming home to the award-winning current and legacy series that FX has produced over nearly two decades, as well as brand-new original series that will be exclusive to Hulu subscribers - all available through FX on Hulu," added Randy Freer, CEO, Hulu. "FX has solidified its position as a premium brand that consumers are passionate about, and we can't wait to bring its valuable content offering to our customers, all in one place."
