Hulu

Hulu has given a ten episode straight-to-series order to Casual, a single-camera, half-hour comedy series from Lionsgate Television to be executive-produced by Oscar(R) nominated director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Juno), series writer Zander Lehmann and Reitman's production partner Helen Estabrook (Whiplash, Young Adult), the company announced. Casual will debut on Hulu in 2015, with Reitman set to direct the premiere episode. Casual follows the story of a dysfunctional family with a bachelor brother and his newly divorced sister. Together, they coach each other through the crazy world of dating (on-line and off), while living under one roof again and raising a teenager. The comedy will be produced by Jason Reitman's Right of Way Films and will begin production this year.
