Hulu has given the greenlight for three unscripted featuring Big Boi, Rachael Ray and Bill Kurtis. The three series come from A+E Networks’ factual production groups Six West Media and Category 6 Media and will premiere in 2023-2024.
Outkast’s Antwan “Big Boi” Patton leads the cast of Big RV Remix, a renovation format, which drops on Hulu on July 21. The series revolves around Big Boi and his business partner Janice Faison who own Celebrity Trailers which specializes in over-the-top custom large vehicle renovations. Per the official description, “From trailers and campers to sprinters and school buses – if it has wheels, Big Boi and Janice are ready to make their clients’ vehicle renovation dreams come true”. The series is produced by Six West Media™ group and Milojo Productions.
In Rachael Ray’s Rebuild, Rachael Ray teams up with contractor Anthony Carrino (Kitchen Cousins) to help families whose homes have been destroyed by weather events, fires, or other disasters, recover from the tragedies. They will not only be renovating and remodeling but will also help them move forward as they rebuild their lives and create the forever home of their dreams. The series hits close to home for Rachael whose life changed forever when her home and all her belongings were burned to the ground in a fire, inspiring her to rebuild her dream home and realize how important home is to her. Rachael Ray’s Rebuild is produced by Six West Media group in association with Intentional Content and Watch Entertainment. The series will stream later this year on Hulu.
Investigative journalist Bill Kurtis narrates true crime show Cold Case Files: DNA Speaks. A premium spinoff of Cold Case Files, the series examines cold cases that are solved through advancements in DNA, along with help from victims’ families, law enforcement and the public. Each episode tells the story of how forensic evidence is used to solve murder cases that have remained unsolved for years. Cold Case Files: DNA Speaks is produced by Category 6 Media group. It premieres August 17 on Hulu.
