Hulu and BBC join forces for comedy

US-based online video service Hulu and UK public broadcaster the BBC have joined forces and will co-produce the fourth season of The Thick of It. The satirical British comedy will then air simultaneously in the US and UK.

The deal marks Hulu’s first international co-production deal as it ramps up its investment in original content. The BBC’s US cable channel BBC America will also air the series in the US, but Hulu will show it first.
