Hulu Bringing Queer Dating Series to U.S.


ITV Studios and Hulu have closed a package deal that will see the streamer become the U.S. home of the first two seasons of Twofour’s Queer dating series I Kissed a….

I Kissed a Boy, which originally aired in 2023, is slated to premiere on Hulu on June 15 as part of the Hulu Has Pride LGBTQ+ month-long celebration. Season two, I Kissed a Girl, is currently airing in the U.K. and will premiere on the platform in the U.S. later this year.

In addition to Hulu, TV2 Echo and TV2 Play in Denmark and TVNZ in New Zealand have picked up both seasons of the show, while 10Play in Australia, VMI in Ireland and YES in Israel have acquired I Kissed A Boy.

Tom Clark, executive VP for global sales, commercial strategy and global partnerships at ITV Studios, said, “It’s our absolute pleasure to bring this trail-blazing series to the world. We’re so delighted that Hulu, which has been the home of Love Island UK for many years and will launch the upcoming season this summer, will be its U.S. home. I Kissed a… deserves every inch of the critical acclaim it has garnered for its genre-defining approach, it’s really exciting to see it transition to a global reality brand.”

David Brindley, Twofour’s chief creative officer and executive producer for I Kissed a…, said, “There’s a huge global need for positive queer representation on our TV screens, so we couldn’t be more thrilled that Hulu will be taking our series to U.S. viewers. The I Kissed a… world is a joyful, uplifting and entertaining new take on the reality genre, and we’re incredibly excited to be sharing the stories of our brilliant boys and girls with everyone across the Atlantic.”

The package deal also includes An Audience with Kylie and Selling Super Houses.
