Last week, Disney’s ABC News Studios released a brand new documentary in the United States on Hulu called “BRATS” and Disney+ subscribers in the United Kingdom and Ireland won’t have to wait much longer to watch it, as Disney has confirmed that the film will be available to stream on Friday 5th July 2024.

BRATS” explores the cultural phenomenon of films such as “St. Elmo’s Fire” and “The Breakfast Club” that tapped into teenage angst and connected with young audiences in a way that had never been done before. The films earned a cult-like following, but the “Brat Pack” label would impact the young actors’ careers in unexpected ways for decades to come.

Director and Brat-Packer Andrew McCarthy, who rose to stardom in such films as “Pretty in Pink,” “St. Elmo’s Fire” and “Less Than Zero” and wrote the New York Times bestselling memoir “Brat: An ‘80s Story,” goes right to the source, reuniting with his fellow Brat-Packers — friends, colleagues and former foes, many of whom he had not seen for over 30 years — to answer the question: What did it mean to be part of the Brat Pack?


“BRATS” is produced by Neon and Network Entertainment for ABC News Studios. Andrew McCarthy is writer and director. The documentary is produced by Derik Murray and Adrian Buitenhuis. Brian Liebman and Andrew McCarthy are executive producers. Neon’s Dan O’Meara and Tom Quinn and Network Entertainment’s Brian Gersh, Paul Gertz and Kent Wingerak are executive producers. For ABC News Studios, Victoria Thompson is executive producer, and David Sloan is senior executive producer. ABC News Studios is led by Mike Kelley, Reena Mehta is the SVP of Streaming and Digital Content, and Kim Godwin is the president of ABC News.
