The Emmy-nominated Horace and Pete is now available on Hulu.
Deadline reports that the Louis C.K. dramedy has been acquired by Hulu in its first-ever deal with the comedian. Louis C.K. created the series and stars along with Steve Buscemi, Edie Falco, Steven Wright, Kurt Metzger, Alan Alda, Aidy Bryant, Laurie Metcalf, and Jessica Lange.
Horace and Pete originally premiered its ten episodes on Louis C.K.’s website in late January. Episodes were made available at prices ranging from $2-$5. C.K. announced the end of Horace and Pete in April, citing the cost of the passion project as a reason for its short run.
C.K.’s series took place in an Irish bar owned by Horace (C.K.) and Pete (Buscemi), aptly named Horace and Pete’s. Louis C.K. wrote and directed every episode of the series, with each episode of the dramedy focusing on Horace, Pete, and the customers who frequent the bar. Episodes of the series varied in length, ranging from 30 minutes to over an hour.
Horace and Pete is executive produced by C.K., M. Blair Breard, Dave Becky, Vernon Chatman, and Dino Stamatopoulos.
