Since its premiere at the Tribeca and SXSW Film Festivals, the release of the long-awaited Saturday Night documentary is no longer a pipe dream. The film has been one of the most highly anticipated releases since the original announcement from Oscilloscope Pictures in 2010. And, starting today, it will be available for you to watch and enjoy, only on Hulu Plus. This marks the premiere and streaming debut of the documentary to the public.

For his NYU Film School Project, James was able to get unprecedented access to the inner workings of Saturday Night Live like no one else ever had. The end result was Saturday Night – a behind-the-scenes look at the production of an SNL episode back in 2008. James documented the entire week from the pitch sessions, to the table reads and rehearsals, to the final broadcast.

The film features two-time Academy Award nominee and legendary Hollywood A-lister John Malkovich as the host of the very special episode, which was also known for the return of cast favorite Amy Poehler (back from maternity leave) and musical guest TI. The original NYU assignment was to make a 7-minute documentary short centered on one person. Franco set out profiling cast member Bill Hader, but the opportunity to make a full-length feature was too good for him to to pass up.

Since its debut, the film has gathered much acclaim. According to Indiewire, the documentary debuted at the SXSW Film Festival in 2010 and the independent movie studios were salivating to get their hands on it. And, Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys and principal of Oscilloscope praised the doc by stating, “SNL is my mother f*ckin’ shit, and James is my mother f*ckin’ man.” High praise indeed.

Hulu is thrilled to be working with Rabbit Bandini Productions (Franco’s production company) to bring this project to Hulu. It is generally hard to characterize a film as having “cult status” prior to it ever having been publically shown…this might be the exception. Head over to Hulu Plus to experience it for yourself!

Ichabod Crane is one of the best-named characters in the history of American literature, in my opinion. For this reason, among many others, I’m extremely excited to announce that Hulu Plus has acquired the exclusive streaming rights to the Emmy-nominated, hit series Sleepy Hollow, starring a dashing (but not American) Tom Mison, as Ichabod.

Beginning today, Hulu Plus will officially become the exclusive streaming home to the entire first season of the cult sensation Sleepy Hollow – giving fans a chance to catch up on the show ahead of its second season premiere on September 22nd on FOX. Additionally, Hulu Plus will have day-after-air access to new episodes after the season two premiere, and will have all season two episodes available to stream following their broadcast on FOX.

Sleepy Hollow has always been a popular show on the Hulu platform. It’s a high-quality series that really resonates with our audience; and now, with the second season premiere approaching, we are delighted to be able to give fans a chance to catch up with Ichabod Crane and the rest of the cast, as well as introduce the critically acclaimed supernatural series to viewers.

FOX’s Sleepy Hollow is a thrilling mystery-adventure drama series spanning two and a half centuries, in which a resurrected Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) pairs up with a present-day police lieutenant (Nicole Beharie) to save the enigmatic town of Sleepy Hollow – and the world – from unprecedented evil.

The series isco-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman (Hawaii Five-0, Underworld and Total Recall), and is executive-produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman, Mark Goffman, Ken Olin and Heather Kadin.

Check out the official trailer for the first season below and be sure to head over to Hulu for all your Sleepy Hollow needs (and watch out for the Headless Horseman)!
