Hulu Announces Premiere Dates for Limited Series 'Under the Bridge' and Drama 'Queenie'

During the streamer's presentation today at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, Hulu announced the premiere dates for the original limited series Under the Bridge and the original drama series Queenie.

The 8-episode limited series Under the Bridge will launch on Wednesday, April 17 with its first two episodes. New episodes will then be released weekly every Wednesday.

The series is based on acclaimed author Rebecca Godfrey's book about the 1997 true story of 14-year-old Reena Virk who went to join friends at a party and never returned home. The series takes the viewers into the hidden world of the teenagers accused of the savage murder, revealing startling truths about the unlikely killer.

Lily Gladstone, Vritika Gupta, Chloe Guidry, Javon "Wanna" Walton, Izzy G., Aiyana Goodfellow, Ezra Faroque Khan, Archie Panjabi and Riley Keough star.

Quinn Shephard developed the series. She executive produces with Godfrey, Keough, Samir Mehta, Liz Tigelaar, Stacey Silverman, Tara Duncan, Gina Gammell and director Geeta Patel. ABC Signature produces.

All 8 episodes of the drama Queenie will be available on Friday, June 7.

Based on the novel by Candice Carty-Williams, Queenie Jenkins is a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in South London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. After a messy breakup with her long-term boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places and begins to realize she has to face the past head-on before she can rebuild.

The drama stars Dionne Brown, Samuel Adewunmi and Bellah. 

Carty-Williams created the drama. She executive produces with Steve November and Sarah Conroy. Lisa Walters serves as a co-executive producer. Lionsgate Television, Onyx Collective and Further South Productions produce.
