EMMY WEEK: 2017 Hulu consideration billboards...

Handmaids Tale 2017 Emmy billboard
One thing's for sure this Emmy season, streaming subscription service Hulu has high hopes for its new dystopian drama, The Handmaid's Tale.

In recent months Hulu has been bolstering its original content, and its new television adaptation of Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel starring Elisabeth Moss couldn't have been more timely with the current political climate America finds itself in, with women denied basic rights and brutally subjugated by the religious male elite and forced to bear children for the ruling class.

The first three episodes were available for viewers to binge watch, then you had to wait on a week-by-week basis to see all the ten episodes of the first season (although the series has already been renewed for a second season).

With awards season becoming even more competitive thanks to digital streaming upstarts like Hulu, Amazon and Netflix, Hulu was one of the first this year to fill the skies with its FYC outdoor ad campaign.
