Hulu Acquires Canadian Comedy “Run the Burbs”

Hulu has acquired the Canadian comedy series Run the Burbs.

What’s Happening:

  • Deadline reports that the comedy series Run the Burbs has been picked up by Hulu as their new U.S. home.
  • While The CW did acquire the show over the summer, the show was pulled from their linear schedule recently, though it does remain present on The CW’s app.
  • Run the Burbs follows star Andrew Phung as a stay-at-home dad in a Vietnamese/South-Asian Canadian family, dealing with a family full of mindsets on how to make the most out of living in the suburbs.
  • The first two seasons will be added to Hulu on New Year’s Eve, just before the third season debuts on Canada’s CBC.
