Hulu Premieres Latino-Themed Drama ‘East Los High’

Hulu today is premiering the English-language drama East Los High, a 24-episode fiction series set in a Los Angeles high-school. The series premieres June 3 and is being billed as a "Hulu original series."

East Los High is the brainchild of producer/director Carlos Portugal, who according to press reports, had three "no's" for the writers: No gardeners, no gang members and no maids. The series recounts a love triangle among a group of Latino teenagers, and as of today is available on both Hulu and Hulu Latino.

Hulu, the video service launched in 2011 by News Corp and Walt Disney Co., is now being pursued by media powerhouses, including Yahoo, which has offered between $600 million and $800 million for the company, and DirecTV, which according to Reuters, has also come forward with an offer of its own.

Hulu, whose premium service Hulu Plus counts over 4 million subscribers, offers subscribers video content from hundreds of providers, including Hispanic-targeted TV networks Azteca America, Estrella TV, History en Español, NUVOTV, Tr3s, Univision, Galavision and Unimás.
