Hulu offered up a trailer for “This Way Up,” a comedy starring Irish writer and comedian Aisling Bea. The six-episode limited series is scheduled to premiere on Hulu on August 21st, and you can get a first look at the project with the video below. The platform describes “This Way Up” as a comedy about “moving on, moving forward and trying to find happiness.” In the story, Aine (Aisling Bea), is a smart English-as-a-foreign language teacher trying to pull her life back together after she experienced a nervous breakdown. In the story, her sister Shona (Sharon Horgan) worries about her little sister and the choices that two of them have been making lately.
Hulu added, “The TEFL school where Aine teaches brings together a room full of characters also trying to find their own hope, direction and happiness in this messy world.” Hulu released the trailer on social media, telling fans, “There’s nowhere to go but up from here.”
September is a busy month on Hulu. The video streaming service is launching “Wu-Tang: An American Saga,” and “Into the Dark: Pure.” October has two big premieres, “Light as a Feather: Season 2,” and the YA limited series “Looking for Alaska.”
“Looking for Alaska” centers around teenager Miles “Pudge” Halter (Charlie Plummer), as he enrolls in boarding school to try to gain a deeper perspective on life. He falls in love with Alaska Young (Kristine Froseth), and finds a group of loyal friends, but after an unexpected tragedy, Miles and his close friends attempt to make sense of what they’ve been through. Joining Plummer and Froseth in the limited series are Denny Love, Jay Lee, Landry Bender, Sofia Vassilieva, Uriah Shelton, and Jordan Connor. Also starring in the adaptation are Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us) and Timothy Simons (Veep).
