Hulu Plus to Distribute Full Seasons of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," "The Mindy Project," "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," "The Real Housewives" Franchise, "Top Chef" and More

LOS ANGELES, April 02, 2014 - Hulu and NBCUniversal Television & New Media Distribution, U.S. & Canada announced today an exclusive multi-year licensing agreement to stream prior seasons of NBCU's popular television properties on the Hulu Plus subscription service.

As part of the agreement, Hulu Plus subscribers will have access to prior seasons of Universal Television's "The Mindy Project" and Golden Globe-winning comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" exclusively on SVOD. In the coming weeks, additional NBCUniversal favorites including Bravo Media's "The Real Housewives" franchise, "Top Chef," "Top Chef Masters," "The Millionaire Matchmaker" and "Flipping Out," as well as E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" will also be available exclusively on SVOD to Hulu Plus subscribers.

Full prior seasons of fan favorite comedy "Parks and Recreation" will be available on Hulu Plus non-exclusively.

"NBCU programming has always been a significant part of Hulu's success and growth. We are excited that Hulu will be the home for fans to catch up, discover and binge these hit comedies and reality shows, many of which have never been available in their entirety on-demand," said Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins. "As 'Mindy' returns this week with new episodes, we're excited that viewers can now exclusively re-watch the first season of the hit series on Hulu Plus, and for the first time, have a 'Real Housewives' or 'Top Chef' marathon from their living rooms or on the go."

"We are delighted that this deal will build on our strong partnership with Hulu," said Frances Manfredi, President, NBCUniversal Television & New Media Distribution, U.S. & Canada. "Now prior seasons of these great Universal Television comedies and the best reality content on television from Bravo and E! Networks will be available to Hulu Plus subscribers exclusively to discover for the first time or to catch up on their favorite shows."

Current-season episodes of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," "The Mindy Project" and "Parks and Recreation" will remain available during their current season runs.
