The Mindy Kaling comedy series “The Mindy Project” has landed a syndication deal that will place the Hulu series on VH1 and Freeform, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
“Under the pact, both networks have scored rights to the first four seasons — the first three of which aired on Fox before moving to Hulu,” THR reports. “VH1 and Freeform will begin airing repeats starting at a date to be determined in October. Hulu will retain in-season stacking rights to the multicamera comedy with VH1 and Freeform set to land those episodes a year after they debut. Episodes from the first four seasons will also be available on VH1 and Freeform’s respective apps.”
The report adds: “Helping to move the syndication sale up was Hulu’s supersized season four order of 26 episodes — higher than the tally for its first three runs. The order helped move the series into closer range for syndication deals, with the series having now produced 93 episodes. Season five, its second on Hulu, premieres Oct. 4 on Hulu with the comedy co-starring Chris Messina and Ed Weeks set to celebrate its 100th episode this season.”
