Not gonna lie, I am wildly attracted to a the style and sleazy sexiness of late ’70s/early ’80s feathered hair and fashion — and all of this oozes out of the first look at the forthcoming Hulu limited series Welcome to Chippendales.
The limited series is a true crime saga that tells the story of Somen “Steve” Banerjee (Kumail Nanjiani), an Indian immigrant who became the unlikely founder of the world’s greatest male-stripping empire—and let nothing stand in his way in the process. Nanjiani stars alongside Murray Bartlett, Juliette Lewis, and Annaleigh Ashford, with recurring guest stars Quentin Plair, Robin de Jesús, and Andrew Rannells and guest stars Nicola Peltz Beckham and Dan Stevens.
Robert Siegel and Nanjiani executive produce alongside Dylan Sellers, Jenni Konner, Matt Shakman, Emily V. Gordon, Nora Silver and Rajiv Joseph, who will write on the series along with Mehar Sethi. Siegel and Konner serve as co-showrunners and Shakman will direct. Jacqui Rivera is co-executive producer and Annie Wyman is co-producer.
Welcome to Chippendales debuts on Hulu on November 22 with two episodes. New episodes will stream Tuesdays.
