Hulu has given a series order to Ramy, described as a “groundbreaking comedy series based on the real-life experiences and comedy of Ramy Youssef.”
The series will bring viewers into the world of a scripted version of Ramy, “a first-generation American Muslim who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood.”
The network says that Ramy will “bring a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like being caught in between an Egyptian community that thinks life is moral, a test, and a millennial generation that thinks life has no consequences.”
Written, executive produced, created by and starring Ramy Youssef, the show is executive produced by Jerrod Carmichael, as well. Carmichael’s producing partner, Ari Katcher, who is a co-creator of the show, also executive producers with Ryan Welch and A24’s Ravi Nandan.
This is Hulu’s first series order from A24.
The streaming network also ordered a limited series remake of Four Weddings and a Funeral from Mindy Kaling.
