The story of the most famous exotic male dance revue takes a dark twist in the just-released teaser trailer for Hulu’s upcoming limited series “Welcome to Chippendales.”
Starring Kumail Nanjiani as Somen “Steve” Banerjee, the show will tell the story of the Indian immigrant who founded the male-stripping empire, a story that includes murder, mystery, entrepreneurship and dancing.
Recent “White Lotus” Emmy winner Murray Bartlett joins Nanjiani in the show as producer and choreographer Nick De Noia, described by the streamer as a “charming, fast-talking New Yorker who’s certain he’s God’s gift to entertainment.”
“Welcome to Chippendales” also stars Annaleigh Ashford, Juliette Lewis, Quentin Plair, Robin de Jesus, Andrew Rannells, Nicola Peltz and Dan Stevens.
The first two episodes of the show will stream beginning Nov. 22 on Hulu.
Robert Siegel and Nanjiani executive produce the show alongside Dylan Sellers, Jenni Konner, Matt Shakman, Emily V. Gordon, Nora Silver and Rajiv Joseph.
Joseph writes the series with Mehar Sethi. Siegel and Konner are co-showrunners. Shakman directs. Jacqui Rivera is co-executive producer and Annie Wyman is co-producer.
