maggie, a new single-camera comedy series, will air exclusively on Hulu, after being originally retrieved by ABC for the 2021-22 season.
What is happening:
- According to the deadline, the decision was made in order to obtain maggie in front of the public instead of keeping it on the bench for lack of slots available on the network.
- Rebecca Rittenhouse plays the titular Maggie, a young woman trying to cope with life while coming to terms with her abilities as a medium. Maggie regularly sees the plight of friends, relatives, clients, and random strangers on the street, but when she suddenly gets a glimpse of her own future, she’s forced to start living in her own present.
- The series also stars David Del Rio as Ben, Nichole Sakura as Louise, Angelique Cabral as Amy, Leonardo Nam as Dave, Ray Ford as Angel, Chloe Bridges as Jessie, Kerri Kenney as Maria, and Chris Elliott as Jack.
- The show is based on the short film of the same name by Tim Curcio.
- maggie is written and produced by Justin Adler and Maggie Mull. Evan Hayes and Jeff Morton are also executive producers.
- The series is produced by 20th Television, a subsidiary of Disney Television Studios.
- The pilot episode was written by Mull and Adler and directed by Natalia Anderson.
- maggie was one of four ABC pilots ordered in series last May, as well as comedies The good years and Abbott Elementary School and drama queens.
- The show is moving from ABC to Hulu, which has developed a tradition in girl-on-girl comedies with shows such as Pen15, Acute, doll face and the next Amy Schumer movie Life and Beth, making it a suitable home for maggie.
- Hulu has yet to announce a premiere date for the series.
- Internationally, maggie will be released on Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ in all other markets.
