Hulu Acquires 'Sleepy Hollow' Exclusive Streaming

Hulu has acquired exclusive streaming rights to the first season of Fox’s Emmy-nominated series “Sleepy Hollow,” available to subscribers of the company’s $7.99-per-month subscription service.

As of Friday, Hulu Plus is the exclusive home the entire first season of “Sleepy Hollow” season one, ahead of its season 2 premiere Sept. 22 on Fox.

In addition, Hulu Plus subscribers will have day-after-air access to new episodes of the second season of “Sleepy Hollow” after their broadcast on Fox. Also, the free Hulu.com service will have a selection of up to five episodes available to stream.

“Sleepy Hollow” is a mystery-adventure drama series spanning 250 years in which a resurrected Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) teams with a present-day police lieutenant (Nicole Beharie) to save the town of Sleepy Hollow — and, by the way, the rest of the world — from unprecedented evil.

Series is produced by K/O Paper Products in association with 20th Century Fox Television. “Sleepy Hollow” is co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman (“Hawaii Five-0,” “Underworld,” “Total Recall”) and executive produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman, Mark Goffman, Ken Olin and Heather Kadin. Iscove serves as supervising producer.

Hulu is a joint venture of 21st Century Fox, Disney and NBCUniversal. According to execs at Hulu, the JV does not receive preferential treatment in negotiations for streaming rights to properties controlled by its parent companies.
