Hulu Comedy Adds Jamie Chung; Turner Heads to New York Comedy Festival

Jamie Chung

Jamie Chung (Once Upon a Time, Big Hero 6) has joined the cast of Hulu comedy series Casual in a recurring role as Tina. Tina has the self-confidence of "a pretty, debt-free, part-time freelance artist whose parents bought her a house." The surprising consequences following Charles' death and Valerie’s decision to move out propel the trio to rebel, exploring different jobs, partners, and unfulfilled passions. As they adjust to a new normal, can they maintain boundaries or will they revert to the comfort of codependency? Season three of Casual begins on Tuesday, May 23 on Hulu. The series stars Michaela Watkins, Tommy Dewey, Tara Lynne Barr and Nyasha Hatendi. 13 episodes have been ordered for this third season.


TBS and New York Comedy Festival

Turner's TBS is partnering with the New York Comedy Festival (NYCF) to amplify the week-long comedy event that will run Tuesday, Nov. 7, through Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017, with over 200 comedians performing in more than 60 shows in the most prestigious venues across New York City. Through this new deal, TBS will activate unique transmedia fan experiences throughout the festival, create a variety of digital and linear content initiatives, and explore development opportunities with the next fresh voices in the comedy space. TBS will also integrate its top talent, starting with Conan O'Brien, who is set to return to New York during NYCF for a week of CONAN episodes taped at the legendary Apollo Theatre. Last year TBS's brand evolution was an unqualified success, driven by an unprecedented string of six consecutive hits - Angie Tribeca, The Detour, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Wrecked, People of Earth and Search Party - all ranking among cable's Top 25 new comedies on cable among adults 18-49.
