Hulu has announced that it has given a straight-to-series order for “Immigrant,” the 8-episode, limited series from “Pam and Tommy” creator Robert Siegel and star/executive producer Kumail Nanjiani.
“Immigrant” is the true story of Somen “Steve” Banerjee (played by Nanjiani), the Indian-American entrepreneur who started Chippendales. The series will detail the insane, darkly comedic, crime-ridden story behind the unique male revue that became a cultural phenomenon.
The series is written by Robert Siegel and executive produced by Siegel, Nanjiani, Dylan Sellers and Emily V. Gordon as well as Rajiv Joseph and Mehar Sethi who will also write on the series.
20th Television serves as the studio on the series, so it’s also likely to be released on Disney+ internationally as a Star Original.
Kumail Nanjiani has previously starred in 20th Century Studios “Stuber” and will be starring in the upcoming Marvel Studios film, “The Eternals”.
