CBS TV SERIES LAUNCHING ON HULU! 8 HIT PROGRAMS TO BE LAUNCHED.FIRST APPEARANCE OF “MACGYVER” IN SVOD.
The video on demand service Hulu is going to launch eight programs (with Sub/Dub) of TV series distributed internationally by CBS Studios International, starting from 8 July.
The popular series HAWAII FIVE-0 is a police crime drama about Hawaii’s brash FIVE-0 unit who are determined to eliminate the seedy elements from the 50th state. BULL is a fresh drama that follows Dr. Bull, the head of one of the most prolific trial-consulting firms of all time, as he combines psychology, human intuition, and high-tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses, and the accused tick. MACGYVER is a reimagining of the classic action-adventure series, which was also popular in Japan in the 80s. ELEMENTARY is a modern-day Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson drama about a crime-solving duo that cracks the NYPD’s most impossible cases. High-Octane drama, SCORPION follows a team of brilliant misfits who are the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age. These five popular series will appear first on Hulu. (See below for the release schedule.)
The special highlight is MACGYVER‘s launch first among all the other SVOD titles on 8 July. The main character, Angus “Mac” MacGyver played by Lucas Till, carries out his mission with an immense wealth of knowledge and his quick wit. Till is one of the young promising actors under the spotlight like Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, from his role as a young mutant Havok in the X-Men series. Furthermore, the memorable first episode was directed by James Wan, known for producing many big hits such as The Conjuring, Furious 7, and Aquaman. It is an exhilarating action series for all the audiences beyond generations.
