A series from Louis C.K. that remains one of his lesser-known projects despite its high-profile cast — and even though it was nominated for two Primetime Emmys this year — has landed on the streaming service Hulu.
The project is “Horace and Pete,” a 10-episode series that stars C.K. along with Steve Buscemi, Edie Falco, Steven Wright, Alan Alda and Jessica Lange. The show earned an Emmy nomination for guest actress Laurie Metcalf along with a nod for picture editing.
The critically acclaimed dramedy, which was previously distributed mainly on C.K.’s website, made its bow on Hulu last week.
“The series revolves around an Irish bar, Horace and Pete’s, and the people who work in and frequent it,” Hulu says in its announcement of the pickup. “C.K., who wrote and directed the series, stars as Horace, the man who runs the bar a year after the death of his father.”
The show is created by Louis C.K., and executive produced by M. Blair Breard, Dave Becky, Vernon Chatman and Dino Stamatopoulos.
