’30 Rock’ streaming on Hulu exclusively under NBC pact

Hulu will become the exclusive subscription VOD home to “30 Rock,” starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, under a new agreement with NBCUniversal Television and New Media Distribution that also covers four other series.

Starting Oct. 1, all episodes of “30 Rock” will be streaming on Hulu, along with NBC shows “Parenthood,” “There’s Johnny,” “Made in Chelsea,” and “Face Off.”

The new Hulu agreement with NBCU — one of Hulu’s owners — comes after the SVOD player nabbed all eight season of the the original “Will & Grace” series.

In addition to bringing the complete library of the critically acclaimed and Emmy Award-winning comedy series from creator and star Tina Fey – 30 Rock – to a new streaming home, the new deal includes a full suite of premium programming that will become available to stream on Hulu:

30 Rock. A three-time Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Comedy Series as well as a critical darling, 30 Rock comes from the brilliant mind of creator and star Tina Fey, whose character Liz Lemon is asked by her ultra corporate boss Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) to somehow make the fictional program “TGS with Tracy Jordan” a success. Working with an oddball staff, no budget and no sleep, Liz keeps up the good fight against long odds. Also starring Tracy Morgan, Jack McBrayer, Scott Adsit, Judah Friedlander and Jane Krakowski, 30 Rock aired for seven seasons and arrives in its entirety on Hulu on October 1st.
