Hulu acquires episodes of 'ER'

Hulu announced a new agreement with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution that will mark the streaming debut of fan-favorite series ER. After being one of the most-watched shows in America during its run, all 15 seasons - more than 330 episodes - are available in SVOD for the first time ever exclusively on Hulu today.

Since its premiere in 1994, "ER" has gone on to become the most-nominated drama in Emmy(R) Award history. The iconic series also helped launch the careers of actors such as George Clooney, Noah Wyle, and Julianna Margulies. 

The series follows the inner workings of an urban teaching hospital in Chicago and the critical issues faced by the dedicated physicians and staff of its overburdened emergency room. The series was produced by Constant c Productions and Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros. Television.

In its 15-season run, the show became the longest-running primetime medical drama in American television history, and has won a total of 23 Primetime Emmy(R) Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series. ER has received a total of 124 Emmy(R) nominations, which makes it the most-nominated drama series in history.

Upon hearing news around the series becoming available on Hulu, star George Clooney stated: "It was such an honor to be a part of this show. I was lucky to have worked with so many writers, actors and directors all at the top of their game. Most importantly I've made friends for a lifetime. I'm excited it will finally be streaming on Hulu."
