Hulu Nabs Streaming Rights to WGN America’s ‘Manhattan’

Manhattan” is heading to Hulu.

Hulu has acquired subscription video-on-demand rights to the new WGN America drama, the streaming platform announced Monday.

Manhattan,” which made its TV debut Sunday night, will be available to Hulu Plus subscribers. Starting Monday, new episodes of the drama will be available via the streaming platform, with the entire 13-episode first season to be available after the season finishes airing on television.

Additionally, for those who aren’t subscribed to Hulu Plus, the five most-recently broadcast episodes of season one will be available on a three-day delay.

The deal marks a bold move for Hulu, as it’s the first time it has nabbed streaming rights to a television series before an episode has hit the air. “Manhattan” follows a group of scientists in the 1940s recruited to work on the Manhattan Project, the development of the first nuclear bombs.

“Manhattan” is produced by Lionsgate Television (which also works with Hulu on comedy “Deadbeat”), Skydance Television and Tribune Studios.
