Nuhash Humayun has revealed the name of his Hulu project. Incidentally, this is the first Bangladeshi content to be featured on Hulu, an American OTT platform.
What is Nuhash’s Hulu project called?
The young filmmaker revealed on his verified Facebook profile that the Hulu project is called “Foreigners Only”.
“I am so so proud of the incredible work my team has done,” Nuhash wrote in the Facebook post.
When will it air on Hulu?
“Foreigners Only” is going to be aired on Hulu this Halloween, in October.
Nuhash produced the short as an episode of Hulu and 20th Digital’s “BITE SIZE HALLOWEEN”.
What is “Foreigners Only” about?
The short apparently takes a jab at some apartments in Dhaka’s Gulshan, Banani areas that are only rented out to foreigners.
Nuhash wrote: “…why is this a big deal? Why do we value the bideshi, the foreign...sometimes more than ourselves?”
“FOREIGNERS ONLY asks these questions and more. And we might not like the answers,” he added.
The Hulu short will not be released in Bangladesh right now, Nuhash wrote.
Earlier in an interview to UNB, Nuhash spoke about the Hulu content.
He said, "Hulu has produced some exclusive content on the occasion of Halloween this year, and one of those projects is made by me. It will air on Halloween in October. It's a single content, and nothing to disclose more than that at this moment. After the official announcement of Hulu, everyone will know the details.”
Speaking on being associated with Hulu's project, Nuhash said, “After evaluating some of my works, they gave me this project. When I went to Hulu's office in Los Angeles, I was a bit nervous. However, the meeting was quite positive. They appreciated all my plans, and that raised my confidence.”
The content was produced in both Bangla and English, with Nuhash serving as both the director and screenwriter.
Nuhash got signed by the Hollywood agencies Anonymous Content and Creative Artists Agency (CAA) earlier this year. Through these two agencies, he got connected with Hulu.
