A number of prime-time shows are headed to Hulu after the streaming service landed the rights to a package of animated programs including all 13 seasons of Fox’s “King of the Hill.”

The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Hulu has also acquired streaming rights to “Bob’s Burgers,” “Family Guy,” “Futurama,” “American Dad” and “The Cleveland Show.”

“The deal expands a licensing agreement Hulu has with 20th Century Fox Television Distribution,” THR reports. “The service will be the only streaming home for Fox’s ‘Bob’s Burgers’ and ‘Family Guy’ and TBS’s ‘American Dad’ after their initial airings. It also will have all episodes of ‘Futurama’ and ‘The Cleveland Show.'”

THR adds: “All of the series in the new deal are produced by 20th Century Fox TV, which is in the process of being absorbed by Disney. The latter will also be the majority owner of Hulu when the deal closes.”
