Hulu is previewing two of its early 2023 titles today with trailers for Original film The Drop and Original docuseries Stolen Youth: Inside the Cult at Sarah Lawrence.
Directed by Sarah Adina Smith, The Drop premieres exclusively on Hulu on Friday, January 13, 2023. You can watch the trailer using the player below.
In The Drop, Lex (PEN15‘s Anna Konkle) and Mani (Coming 2 America‘s Jermaine Fowler) are a happily-married young couple, running their dream artisanal bakery in Los Angeles and excited about starting a family together.
A trip to a tropical island resort for a friend’s destination wedding, coinciding with Lex’s ovulation cycle, feels like the perfect opportunity to conceive.
But good vibes and high hopes are cut short when, shortly after their arrival to paradise, Lex accidentally drops her friend’s (Aparna Nancherla, Search Party) baby in front of all their friends.
Paradise becomes purgatory for our couple as recriminations, passive-aggression and old wounds begin to permeate the island reunion and throw Mani and Lex’s future into deep uncertainty.
The Drop stars Anna Konkle, Jermaine Fowler, Jillian Bell, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Robin Thede, Aparna Nancherla, Joshua Leonard, Jennifer Lafleur, and Elisha Henig.
The movie was written by Sarah Adina Smith and Joshua Leonard.
All three episodes of docuseries Stolen Youth: Inside the Cult at Sarah Lawrence will debut on Hulu February 9, 2023.
With unprecedented access, Stolen Youth: Inside the Cult at Sarah Lawrence excerpts striking first-hand interviews with conman Larry Ray’s victims and incorporates personal audio tapes and video recordings to tell the story of his grim 10 year influence over a group of young people.
The series follows the story from the cult’s origins in 2010 on the Sarah Lawrence campus until its recent demise, when the last members find their own paths to survival.
