Hulu is adding to its content library with a new, coming-of-age series titled “In My Skin.” The show revolves around “a Welsh teenager living a double life, as she negotiates mental illness, friendships and her sexuality,” Deadline reports. The show was written by Kayleigh Llewellyn.
The pilot for “In My Skin” originally aired for BBC Wales and BBC Three in 2018 and a full five-part series was later commissioned. The series will be available on Hulu on June 4, as the streamer inked a deal with distributor BBC Studios.
“In My Skin” will premiere at the heels of some hits on the platform. Suspense series “Little Fires Everywhere” just wrapped its first season. Starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, the series, which was based on the bestselling Celeste Ng book, is the streamer’s most successful drama series.
Earlier this month, Hulu scored big by acquiring the exclusive U.S. streaming rights to Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite.” The critically acclaimed film made history earlier this year when it became the first foreign-language film to win best picture at the Academy Awards.
On May 8, Hulu will also debut “Delivered,” part of its “Into the Dark” horror movie anthology series. Hulu renewed “Into the Dark” for a second season last summer; the series screens one themed show per month. May’s entry is tied to Mother’s Day.
