In a recent interview with TV critic Emily Nussbaum at the New Yorker Festival, comedian Louis C.K. dropped a bit of surprise information on fans: his self-developed web series Horace and Pete is coming to Hulu.
Louis C.K. added though that he had “no idea if (he had) the right to say that” and asked the audience not to tell anyone.
The critically acclaimed web series, which was developed and financed by Louis C.K. himself, focuses on the owners of Horace and Pete’s, a run-down Brooklyn bar. Horace and Pete had a price tag of $4.5 million for production, despite the fact that Louis originally intended to only spend $2 million of his own money.
The 10-episode first season of Horace and Pete was a little pricey by most standards, with the first episode costing $5, the second episode $2, and $3 for episodes 3 to 10, coming to $31 for a single season. Louis C.K. said that although he spent far more than he intended to making this show, he made back his financial investment in the series through fan purchases alone.
It’s not confirmed that the series has actually signed an agreement with Hulu, but of course, Louis C.K. would know better than anyone else. Since the arrangement hasn’t been confirmed, no release date has been set.
