CNN Is Now Selling Its Original Series to Streaming Networks

By Chris Ariens 

Here’s something Ted Turner couldn’t have imagined 36 years ago today when he launched CNN. For the first time, the network has sold the streaming rights to one of its original series.

Hulu has acquired the exclusive streaming rights to Race for the White House, narrated by Kevin Spacey. The 6-part series was the most-watched CNN Original Series when it premiered earlier this year.

Available now on Hulu, the CNN series expands the streaming network’s relationship with Turner Broadcasting, which includes full seasons of programming from TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, and Adult Swim.


Race for the White House joins a growing list of political programming on Hulu including Triumph’s Election Special 2016.
