Pasadena, CA – Any residual disappointment over the absence of Netflix and Amazon at the Winter 2017 Television Critics Association tour dissipated on Saturday as the other big streaming service, Hulu, presented a full and very fulfilling day of press conferences and other activities here at the Langham Huntington Hotel. (In the interest of complete fairness I will note that Amazon provided an executive- and talent-free lunch on the opening day of this tour and made stars from its new series Sneaky Pete available for one-on-one interviews in private rooms at the hotel. But that was it.) Hulu hit it out of the park, presenting an intoxicating mix of sessions for upcoming series, specials and documentaries; returning series, and other new projects, including its partnership with CMT and Lionsgate to produce an all-new 22 episode season of the long-running broadcast series Nashville.
