Hulu has cut a deal with Endemol Shine International for the exclusive U.S. SVOD rights to seasons one and two of Mr. Bean: The Animated Series.
The series takes British actor/comedian Rowan Atkinson’s pratfall-prone Mr. Bean character and brings him into a cartoon world. The first season, consisting of 52 11-minute episodes, originally aired on Britain’s ITV from 2002 to 2004, and went on to be licensed to 70 territories internationally. The series was revived with a second season of 52 11-minute episodes that debuted on CITV (Children’s ITV) in February.
The series is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions, an Endemol Shine company.
