Hulu picks up series ‘PEN15’


Hulu has picked up the series PEN15!

Hulu has ordered 10 episodes of middle school comedy PEN15, starring Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle.

The comedy, co-created by Erskine, Konkle and Sam Zvibleman, is described as middle school as it really happened. Erskine and Konkle play versions of themselves as 13-year-old outcasts in the year 2000, surrounded by actual 13-year-olds, where the best day of your life can turn into your worst with the stroke of a gel pen.

The project, which had been long-in-the-works, landed at Hulu based on an 11-minute presentation from Konkle and Erskine, who are best friends in real life and play best friends during a horribly awkward 7th grade.

PEN15 hails from Lonely Island, Party Over Here, Odenkirk Provissiero, and AwesomenessTV. Production will begin this summer.
