Hulu’s original series are hitting the international marketplace. FremantleMedia Enterprises has signed a first-look deal with Hulu for international distribution rights to the online video service’s original programming, the first such pact for an online video company. Under the deal, FME has the right to distribute Hulu original series globally across all platforms, including traditional media. The first Hulu title FME will take out is Morgan Spurlock’s documentary series A Day In The Life, whose second season premieres tomorrow on Hulu and Hulu Plus. A Day In The Life, which chronicles a complete day in the life of famous people, marked Hulu’s foray into long-form original content. “This is a ground-breaking deal, which sets a new precedent for acquiring content that can live on both digital and linear platforms, while identifying opportunities outside of the traditional distribution models,” said David Ellender, Global CEO of FremantleMedia Enterprises.
