Hulu locks up exclusive rights for 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' and 'The Mindy Project'

New, 9 comments

Hulu announced today that it reached an agreement to become the exclusive streaming home for a host of popular comedies, including Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mindy Project. While the shows were previously available on the service, the deal with NBCUniversal will keep them out of the hands of competitors like Netflix.

The deal will also bring reality shows like Top Chef and Keeping Up With the Kardashians to Hulu. Past seasons of the Amy Poehler comedy Parks and Recreation are also included, though they won't be exclusive to the service. The battle for exclusive rights to individual shows has been heating up lately, with Amazon snagging 24 from Netflix earlier this week. Despite being one of Hulu's parent companies (alongside Disney and Fox), NBCUniversal claims Hulu was given no preferential treatment in the deal.

Correction: Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mindy Project were previously available on Hulu through a non-exclusive deal. A previous version of this story stated they were coming to Hulu for the first time.
