The TV Answer Man!

Hulu Adds 85 New Titles Today

Hulu today has added 85 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including a much-anticipated original series based on a real-life sex scandal in Great Britain.

Hulu, and other streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon, traditionally bolster their streaming offerings on the first day of each month when consumers are more likely to make decisions about subscriptions.

Amazon Fire TV w/4K: $89.

The new title list for Hulu today includes National Treasure, a four-part original Hulu drama based on the sex scandals that rocked British television in the 1990s; Robbie Coltrane plays an aging comedian who’s arrested for an alleged rape that took place years ago.

Other notable additions today include Carrie, the 1976 horror film directed by Brian DePalma; The Gambler, the 2014 remake starring Mark Wahlberg as a college professor who’s addicted to poker; and A Simple Plan, a mystery starring the late Bill Paxton as well as Billy Bob Thornton and Bridget Fonda (remember her?)
