Hulu has decided to throw its hat into the German video content ring with last weeks announcement that it had picked up the US streaming rights to the popular Franco-German financial thriller Bad Banks.
Set in the ruthless world of international stock markets and finance, Bad Banks follows a talented young banker, Jana, trying to survive in the high stakes world after landing a dream-job in Frankfurt. She must give up her previous life, including her boyfriend and 5-year-old daughter, to give all that she has, but soon finds her former boss pulling strings in the background with blackmail that leaves Jana grasping to stay ahead.
The show, which made its German TV debut on ZDF earlier this year, had a successful debut with its six-episode first season and has already been picked up for an additional season in Germany.
All six episodes of Bad Banks season 1 can now be watched on Hulu in the US.
