Four different e-sports shows are coming to Hulu
The eSports League and Hulu have announced they are teaming up to produce four different shows centered on e-sports which will be available exclusively on the Hulu streaming service later this fall.
According to an announcement over on the ESL website, the four shows include the following:
- Player V. Player: A “gamified debate show” featuring both shoutcasters and influencers arguing with each other for points. The result, ESL said, would be “an urgent, passionate conversation amongst signature esports personalities, connecting communities while also pitting them against one another.” At the conclusion of the show, both sides will face off in “a final challenge over a classic video game.”
- Bootcamp: A weekly series that will follow The Immortals esports team on their way to a high-profile Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament in Oakland, California. ESL said that the series will “give unprecedented access to the inner workings of a professional esports team, with scrimmages and practice sessions at the team house as they formulate a new strategy and build team chemistry.”
- Defining Moments: A kind of news magazine, ESL says it will cover “impactful moments in esports history” and will feature themes like “trick-shots and insane reflex skills, controversial moves and their impact on gaming history, or long-lasting rivalries and how they came to be.” Guests will include players, developers and sports scientists.
- ESL Replay: A documentary-style roundup of four major ESL tournaments, created within one week of the live event.
This will mark Hulu’s first major foray into the e-sports space. In total, the four new shows are expected to add about 15 hours of e-sports coverage to the platform, and they’ll feature games such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (naturally), PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and Dota 2.
