Hulu has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original limited series Welcome to Chippendales starring Kumail Nanjiani.

The 8-episode limited series will debut on Tuesday, November 22 with new episodes being released weekly.

A sprawling true-crime saga, the series tells the outrageous story of Somen "Steve" Banerjee (Nanjiani), an Indian immigrant who became the unlikely founder of the world's greatest male-stripping empire - and let nothing stand in his way in the process.

In addition to Nanjiani, the limited series stars Murray Bartlett, Juliette Lewis and Annaleigh Ashford.

Recurring guest stars include Quentin Plair, Robin de Jesús, Andrew Rannells, Nicola Peltz Beckham and Dan Stevens.

Robert Siegel created the series. He executive produces with Nanjiani, Dylan Sellers, Jenni Konner, Matt Shakman, Emily V. Gordon, Nora Silver and Rajiv Joseph. Siegel and Konner serve as co-showrunners, with Shakman directing.
