Hulu’s spring and summer TV lineup is absolutely stacked

Lots to look forward to.

Fans of Hulu‘s original programming will want to mark their calendars. The streaming giant announced premiere dates for some of its most popular series and three new documentaries this week.

Here’s a timeline:

May 6

Batman & Bill, a documentary about Batman‘s alleged true creator, Bill Finger. While most people associate Bob Kane with inventing the character, Finger was apparently “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.”

May 20

Becoming Bond, a “documentary/narrative hybrid” about 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.” The man went on to turn down an offer to star in the next six Bond films and a $1 million signing bonus. Dang.

May 23

Original series Casual will kick off its third season.

June 3

Dumb: The Story of Big Brother Magazine is a documentary about the magazine that brought us Jackass and inspired an entire generation of skaters. It apparently features “a trove of original footage and interviews” with the magazine’s staff, and “celebrates the lowbrow legacy” of the 90’s counterculture scene surrounding them. It will feature interviews with Spike Jonze, Johnny Knoxville, Steve Rocco, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Tony Hawk, and Chad Muska.

August 8

Difficult People season 3 premieres, with co-stars Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner both returning. Fans can also expect a guest arc from Harold and Kumar‘s John Cho, who will reportedly play Billy’s new boyfriend.

Not too shabby!
