Murray Bartlett (The White Lotus) has joined the cast of Hulu’s upcoming limited series “Immigrant.”
“Immigrant” follows the story of Banerjee (Kumail Nanjiani), the Indian-American entrepreneur who started the famed troop Chippendales. The show will detail the insane, darkly comedic, crime-ridden story behind the unique male revue that became a cultural phenomenon.
Per Deadline, Bartlett joins the series as a series regular and will appear as Nick De Noia. Producer-choreographer Nick De Noia is a charming, fast-talking New Yorker who’s certain he’s God’s gift to entertainment. Just ask him. He is the person responsible for transforming Chippendales from a seedy male strip joint in West LA to the global juggernaut it would one day become. A man of many passions, Nick loves drinking, drugs, women, men–and most of all, show biz.
Kumail Nanjiani will star and executive produce.
The project hails from Pam & Tommy creator Robert Siegel.
Robert Siegel is the show’s writer and executive producer alongside Nanjiani, Dylan Sellers, Jenni Konner, Ramin Bahrani, Emily V. Gordon and Rajiv Joseph. Joseph will also write the show with Mehar Sethi.
Siegel and Konner serve as co-showrunners and Bahrani will direct. Jacqui Rivera is co-executive producer, Nora Silver is producer and Annie Wyman is co-producer.
20th Television serves as the studio on the series.
SAG Award nominee Murray Bartlett is best known for his work as hotel manager Armond in HBO’s The White Lotus. Other credits include Tales of the City, Looking, and he will also appear in HBO’s upcoming The Last of Us.
