Hulu Inks ‘Goldbergs’ Exclusive Subscription VOD Pact

Hulu has reached a deal with Sony Pictures Television for exclusive subscription-streaming rights to past seasons of 1980s-era family comedy “The Goldbergs,” which airs on ABC.

Under the deal, “The Goldbergs,” which stars Jeff Garlin (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids”), Hulu will offer the first two seasons on both its $7.99 monthly ad-supported service as well as its recently introduced $11.99 premium tier with limited commercials.

ABC premiered season 3 of “The Goldbergs” on Wednesday night, with a preliminary Nielsen rating of 2.4/8 in the 18-49 demo and 7.6 million viewers overall, on par with last year’s debut.

Hulu provides the five most recent episodes of current-season shows under its existing pact with the Alphabet net, and ABC also provides those free on ABC.com and other digital platforms.

The “Goldbergs” pact comes after Hulu cut a massive deal with SPT for all nine seasons of ’90s hit sitcom “Seinfeld,” which became available to Hulu subs this summer. Hulu is paying Sony about $875,000 per episode, translating to nearly $160 million overall.

“Goldbergs” is created, written and exec produced by Adam F. Goldberg, who crafted the series as a semi-autobiographical comedy about his childhood. The show’s executive producers also include Doug Robinson, Seth Gordon, Alex Barnow and Marc Firek. Sony Pictures Television produces “The Goldbergs” in association with Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison.
