It’s the follow-up to its Triumph election special, which aired in February during the primary season. The follow-up special was announced during Hulu’s upfront in May and will available to Hulu subscribers on August 11.
In Triumph’s Summer Election Special 2016, Triumph makes his return to the Presidential campaign trail, covering delegates, protesters, and the major players as they descend on Cleveland and Philadelphia for the Republican and Democratic conventions, respectively. Triumph has already made headlines conducting a live show directly behind Wolf Blitzer’s panel and commandeering a Westboro Baptist Church demonstration.
“The world needs this desperately,” Triumph said from behind a female Corgi. “Nothing makes sense right now. A craven bully is a nominee. I’m talking, of course, about myself.”
In his previous Hulu special, Triumph took on the 2016 Presidential race in the heat of the primary election season – taking viewers from Iowa, to New Hampshire, to South Carolina in a tenacious news-gathering journey.
Triumph’s Summer Election Special 2016 comes to Hulu in an expanded partnership with Funny Or Die. The special is created and executive produced by Robert Smigel and executive produced by Funny Or Die’s Anna Wenger and Mike Farah; Conan O’Brien, and Sue Fellows.
