Crazy Fun Park Gets Hulu Premiere


The comedy-horror series Crazy Fun Park has been acquired by Hulu, set to premiere across the U.S. on October 1.

The series has been scheduled as part of the streamer’s Huluween programming. Crazy Fun Park follows Mapplethorpe, who is killed at an abandoned theme park, and his best friend Chester, who discovers that his friend’s soul has stuck around, along with the ghosts of other teenagers who have died at the park.

Crazy Fun Park premiered to Australian audiences on Australia’s ABC in January and is available to watch on iview. The series is set to premiere in a number of different territories over the coming months after being acquired by broadcasters in Spain, Finland, Norway, Lithuania, Belgium, Slovenia, Taiwan, New Zealand and the U.K.

The show is a Werner Film Productions series and produced for ABC. Major production investment comes from Screen Australia and the Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF) in association with VicScreen and the ABC. Distribution is handled by the ACTF.

Jenny Buckland, CEO of the ACTF, said: “Crazy Fun Park is a clever, funny and unique series, full of horror and humor, interwoven with a moving narrative about friendship and grief and pop culture references that appeal to a wide demographic. Set in an eerie world full of ghosts and ghouls, Crazy Fun Park takes audiences on a wild and unforgettable ride, and we know that U.S. audiences will enjoy every minute of it.”
