Hulu is expanding its original comedy slate and its relationship with Amy Schumer, ordering 10 episodes of Love, Beth, a half-hour comedy series created, directed, written, executive produced by and starring Schumer, from Endeavor Content. The project is the first for Schumer under her just-signed first-look deal with the streaming network.
The news was announced Friday as part of Hulu’s presentation at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills.
Further details on the series will be announced in the coming weeks. It’s slated to launch on Hulu in late 2020.
