[via press release from Hulu]

HULU SUMMER SLATE

BATMAN & BILL

Premiere Date: Saturday, May 6th

Crew: Directed and executive produced by Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce.

Principal Subjects: Marc Tyler Nobleman, Michael Uslan, Athena Finger, and Alethia Mariotta.

Synopsis: Everyone thinks that Bob Kane created Batman, but that's not the whole truth. One author makes it his crusade to seek justice for Bill Finger, a struggling writer who was the key figure in creating the iconic superhero, from concept to costume to the very character we all know and love. Bruce Wayne may be Batman's secret identity, but his creator was always a true mystery.

BECOMING BOND

Premiere Date: Saturday, May 20th

Crew: Written, directed and produced by Josh Greenbaum. Produced by Rafael Marmor and Christopher Leggett.

Principal Cast: George Lazenby, Josh Lawson, Kassandra Clementi, Jane Seymour, Jeff Garlin, Jake Johnson, and Dana Carvey.

Synopsis: A unique documentary/narrative hybrid chronicling the stranger-than-fiction true story of George Lazenby, a poor Australian car mechanic who, through an unbelievable set of circumstances, landed the role of James Bond in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), despite having never acted a day in his life. Then after being offered the next six Bond films and a $1 million signing bonus, he turned it all down...

CASUAL

Season Three

Premiere Date: Tuesday, May 23rd

Episode Count: 13

Cast: Michaela Watkins, Tommy Dewey, Tara Lynne Barr and Nyasha Hatendi.

Crew: Casual comes to Hulu from Lionsgate and is created, and executive produced by Zander Lehmann. Executive produced by Jason Reitman, Helen Estabrook and Liz Tigelaar.

Synopsis: The surprising consequences following Charles' death and Valerie's decision to move out propel the trio to rebel, exploring different jobs, partners, and unfulfilled passions. As they adjust to a new normal, can they maintain boundaries or will they revert to the comfort of codependency?

DUMB: THE STORY OF BIG BROTHER MAGAZINE

Premiere Date: Saturday, June 3rd

Crew: Directed by Patrick O'Dell. Executive produced by Jeff Tremaine and produced by Sean Cliver.

Appearances and Interviews: Spike Jonze, Johnny Knoxville, Steve Rocco, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Tony Hawk and Chad Muska.

Synopsis: Dumb: The Story of Big Brother Magazine charts the rise and fall of the irreverent, boundary-pushing Big Brother Magazine, whose taboo-breaking stunts and unapologetically crass humor spawned MTV's Jackass and a generation of skaters. Featuring a trove of original footage and interviews with the magazine's major players, "Dumb" celebrates the lowbrow legacy of this touchstone of 90's counterculture. With Spike Jonze, Johnny Knoxville, Steve Rocco, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Tony Hawk, Chad Muska.
