A look at the originals, exclusive and premieres that are part of the Hulu April 2023 lineup.
Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields: Two-Part Documentary Premiere (Hulu Original – Streaming April 3)
The two-part documentary from Emmy Award-winning director Lana Wilson (“Miss Americana”) is a galvanizing look at actor, model and icon Brooke Shields as she transforms from a sexualized young girl to a woman discovering her power. Holding a mirror up to a society that objectifies women and girls, her story shows the perils and triumphs of gaining agency in a hostile world.
“Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields” is produced by Matador Content and BedBy8 for ABC News Studios. The film marks the debut project from BedBy8, the newly formed production company by Ali Wentworth, George Stephanopoulos and partner Alyssa Mastromonaco.
The Good Mothers: Complete Limited Series (Hulu Original – Streaming April 5)
The story tells of bright, young prosecutor, Anna Colace, who works with the women of the ‘Ndrangheta in order to bring the notorious mafia organization down from within. The women, mothers and wives of the top bosses, were violently oppressed and marginalized by the overbearing patriarchal system of the criminal organization.
Anna’s experience starts with the notorious disappearance of Lea Garofalo, who agreed to act as a witness against her husband, Carlo Cosco, to escape his control and help her daughter, Denise, to grow up away from such a toxic environment.
Anna’s investigation delves further into the murky world of the ‘Ndrangheta and the powerful stories of Giuseppina Pesce and Concetta Cacciola’s – two very different women who share a dramatic background; an oppressive and suffocating existence, and the desire and drive to escape in order to give themselves and their children a better future, just as Lea tried to do.
The Pope: Answers: Special Premiere (Hulu Original – Streaming April 5)
“The Pope: Answers” is an original Spanish special featuring Pope Francis and directed by Jordi Évole and Màrius Sanchez. Shot in Rome, the special focuses on the meeting between the current head of the Catholic Church and ten young adults of different ages, backgrounds and with very different lives and experiences.
The special features upfront and honest conversations between one of the most influential people in the world and ten Spanish-speaking young adults between 20 and 25 years old who raise questions and concerns on a wide variety of topics, including: feminism, the role of women in the Church, reproductive rights, loss of faith, the migration crisis, LGBTQIA+ rights, abuse within the Church, racism and mental health.
The meeting between the Pope and the ten young adults took place in July 2022 in the Pigneto, one of Rome’s most eclectic neighborhoods. The Pope speaks unreservedly and the result is an intense and dynamic conversation, founded on empathy, curiosity, respect and mutual learning.
Reginald the Vampire: Complete Season 1 (GPM Productions – Streaming April 5)
Based on Johnny B. Truant’s “Fat Vampire” novels, the 10-episode comedy-tinged drama, led by Jacob Batalon (“Spider-Man: No Way Home”) as Reginald, turns traditional vampire tropes on their head while draining the blood from modern-day beauty standards.
Newly turned, Reginald crashes into a world populated by beautiful, fit and vain vampires, where he overcomes obstacles not limited to: A bully boss, falling for a human girl he can’t have, and a vampire chieftain who wants him dead. Fortunately, Reginald discovers he has a few powers of his own.
FX’s Dave: Two-Episode Season 3 Premiere (FXX – Streaming April 6)
Dave is headlining his first-ever tour, and looking for love along the way. But as he and the gang crisscross America, they discover firsthand how diverse the cultural landscape of the United States really is – and how often fame puts pressure on love and friendship.
Tiny Beautiful Things: Complete Limited Series (Hulu Original – Streaming April 7)
Based on the best-selling collection by Cheryl Strayed, “Tiny Beautiful Things” follows Clare (Kathryn Hahn), a floundering writer who becomes a revered advice columnist while her own life is falling apart. When we first meet Clare, her marriage to her husband Danny is barely limping along; her teenage daughter, Rae, is pushing her away; and her once-promising writing career is non-existent.
So when an old writing pal asks her to take over as the advice columnist Dear Sugar, she thinks she has no business giving anyone advice. After reluctantly taking on the mantle of Sugar however, Clare’s life unfurls in a complex fabric of memory, exploring her most pivotal moments from childhood through present day, and excavating the beauty, struggle, and humor in her unhealed wounds.
Through Sugar, Clare forms a salve for her readers – and for herself – to show us that we are not beyond rescue, that our stories can ultimately save us. And, perhaps, bring us back home.
FX’s New York Times Presents: The Legacy of J Dilla: Documentary (Streaming April 7)
Born James Dewitt Yancey, the Detroit native who came to be known as J Dilla started rapping and making beats as a kid. He grew into a visionary music producer, rapper and artist who left an undeniable mark on the hip-hop landscape, working with artists like Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, A Tribe Called Quest and D’Angelo.
Dilla’s influence has been celebrated far more since his death than it was while he was alive, but mainstream recognition remains elusive. With exclusive access to Dilla’s family, the film is an intimate portrait of a creative powerhouse, and it explores the complications that have arisen as so many people try to control his legacy.
“I’m a Detroiter and I’m a fighter,” his mother, Maureen Yancey says. “I will stay in there and I will fight. I won’t let anybody put my son down, what I do for him down, because I’m here to lift up his music, his legacy.”
The Honeymoon (2022 – Streaming April 7)

When charming gangster Giorgio falls for Sarah, he gets rid of Adam and Bav by sending them across the border on a drug-dealing mission.
Can they outrun the Slovenian cops, dodge bullets from the baddies, and get back before Sarah gets a rich new mobster boyfriend? From the writer of “Death at a Funeral” and “Love Wedding Repeat.” Starring Maria Bakalova (“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm”) and Lucas Bravo (“Emily in Paris”).

As Katherine becomes caught in a dangerous political game between the monarchs, Jan falls in love with her strong spirit and dedication to saving the people.
In a brave attempt to liberate her, he fights back with a rebel army to battle the corruption, greed, and betrayal rampant amongst those clawing for power. Jan now realizes that the fate of the Empire will be decided by his love for Lady Katherine and that his fate doesn’t lie in the hands of Kings, but in the hands of his own people.

Mouse and her constant sidekick Ugly (Keith Powers) quickly realize that it is up to them to dig up all the dirt and start the hunt for the culprits. Desperate for answers and with time running out, Mouse chooses a very risky play that plunges her further down the rabbit hole and into a sordid underworld, leaving her out in the open.

Around that narrative are a collection of compelling characters in and out of the school – among them a passionate community leader and educator, as well as a group of families fighting the epidemics of gun violence, death, and incarceration. Altogether, the series is a rare and real, captivating, candid, and sometimes difficult look at life in a community fighting to be defined by triumph, on the football field and far beyond.
Executive produced by the creators of “The Last Dance,” “OJ: Made in America,” “Baltimore Boys,” and ESPN’s “30 for 30” films, and the former executive producer of “60 Minutes,” “Algiers, America” will at once break your heart and inspire you with its gripping tale, unforgettable characters, and tribute to possibility.

Love Me: Complete Season 2 (DCD Rights – Streaming April 21)
In this series return, the Mathieson family, Glen (Hugo Weaving), his daughter Clara (Bojana Novakovic) and son Aaron (William Lodder), have picked up the pieces of their complex lives following Christine’s death and are each grappling with a new reality that poses the challenging question – is love enough?
Glen and Anita (Heather Mitchell) are faced with the arrival of someone from her past who will threaten their current happiness and security; Clara must come to terms with becoming a step parent to Peter’s (Bob Morley) son as well as the very real prospect that her hopes of having a family of her own may never be realised; whilst Aaron’s attempts to juggle fatherhood, Ella (Shalom Brune-Franklin) and his love for Jesse send him into a spiral of self-doubt and erratic behaviour.
Together, however, the Mathiesons will weather the storm of uncertainty as they always do, with humour, arguments, misunderstandings, champagne and of course… a deep and bonding love.
FX’s Dear Mama: Two-Episode Series Premiere (Streaming April 22)
From Allen Hughes, the award-winning director of critically-acclaimed “The Defiant Ones”, comes FX’s “Dear Mama,” a deeply personal five-part series that defies the conventions of traditional documentary storytelling to share an illuminating saga of mother and son, Afeni and Tupac Shakur.
Afeni Shakur was a revolutionary, an intellect and a voice for the people. She became a feminist darling of the ’70s, a female leader in the movement amidst the macho milieu of the Black Panther Party. Tupac was a rapper and poet, a political visionary and philosopher who became known as one of the greatest rap artists of all time.
In addition to becoming a global sex symbol and media favorite for his outspoken and sometimes outrageous antics, he would eventually become the poster child for modern Black activism. Their story chronicles the possibilities and contradictions of the United States from a time of revolutionary fervor to Hip Hop culture’s most ostentatious decade.
FX’s “Dear Mama” is both an audio and visual experience. Tupac’s timeless message is undeniable as beats evaporate into soundscapes and his lyrics revealed to be mantras of passion and politics. It eschews strict chronology for a style that slides back and forth in time, finding linkages between mother and son, 1970s and 1990s, Black activism and Hip Hop, that highlight how much has and has not changed in the struggle for human rights.
Through this technique, the eras speak to each other and melt time away, shifting the dual narratives into one definitive portrait of a global superstar and the woman who shaped him, forever linked by love and fate.
Saint X: Three-Episode Series Premiere (Hulu Original – Streaming April 26)
The series, which is told via multiple timelines, explores and upends the girl-gone-missing genre as it explores how a young woman’s mysterious death during an idyllic Caribbean vacation creates a traumatic ripple effect that eventually pulls her surviving sister into a dangerous pursuit of the truth.
There There (2022 – Streaming April 27)
Acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Bujalski (“Support the Girls,” “Computer Chess”) explores the precarious nature of human connection in “There There,” a round robin of emotional two-character vignettes in which seven people reach out and bond momentarily, setting the scene for the next encounter. A pair of new lovers, an alcoholic and her AA sponsor, a teacher and a parent, a lawyer and his client, and more move from scene to scene, revealing intimate details as they forge connections.
Via a groundbreaking shooting process, Bujalski plays with ideas of isolation and perception by filming each actor individually in separate locations, only joining them to their partner’s performance in the edit. An extraordinary cast including Jason Schwartzman, Lennie James, Lili Taylor and Molly Gordon sensitively captures the humor and heartbreaking fragility of life and love in the 2020s.
Clock (2023) (Hulu Original – Streaming April 28)
Directed and written by Alexis Jacknow (“Again,” upcoming “The Villager”), “Clock” is the story of a woman who enrolls in a clinical trial to try and fix her seemingly broken biological clock after friends, family, and society pressures her to have children.
Dianna Agron (“Shiva Baby”, forthcoming “Acidman” and “El Elegido”) leads as Ella, with Jay Ali (“Carnival Row,” “Daredevil”) as her husband and Saul Rubinek (“Unforgiven,” “Frasier”) as her father. Melora Hardin (“The Office,” “The Bold Type”) features as the pioneering doctor managing Ella’s treatment.
