Hulu Picks Up ‘Behind the Mask’ Docu-Series for Second Season

Series helmer Josh Greenbaum also directed documentary film 'The Short Game,' which is coming to Netflix

Hulu ordered a second season of Occupant Entertainment’s documentary series, “Behind the Mask,” exploring the world of high school, college and pro sports mascots — and the people who inhabit them.

The 10-episode second season of “Behind the Mask” will again be helmed by filmmaker Josh Greenbaum, whose documentary film about kid golfers, “The Short Game,” will debut on Netflix next month. “Behind the Mask” is exec produced by Occupant Entertainment partners Felipe Marino and Joe Neurauter as well as Occupant exec Kate Sharp. 

“Behind the Mask” season two, slated to premiere on Hulu and Hulu Plus in the second half of 2014, will profile three new characters at the high school, college and professional levels.

“Josh’s perceptive and empathetic storytelling is insightful and entertaining,” said Charlotte Koh, Hulu Originals head of development. “He turns the mascots into everyday superheroes who we can all relate to and root for.”

Hulu over the next month will release the final four episodes of “Behind the Mask” season 1, with the finale to go online Dec. 17.
