Robin de Jesus is chipp-ing in…
A first look trailer at Hulu’s Welcome to Chippendales, a limited series starring the Puerto Rican actor and Kumail Nanjiani, has been released.
The sprawling true-crime saga follows Somen “Steve” Banerjee (Nanjiani), a socially awkward Indian immigrant who became the unlikely founder of the world’s greatest male-stripping empire — and let nothing stand in his way in the process.
“A world of luxury — right at your fingertips,” Banerjee says. But plenty of others want their piece of the action, including Nick De Noia (newly minted Emmy winner Murray Bartlett). His involvement ultimately doesn’t go over all that well.
Annaleigh Ashford, Juliette Lewis, Quentin Plair, Andrew Rannells, Dan Stevens and Nicola Peltz as the doomed Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten. Philip Shahbaz plays Peter Bogdanovich.
Robert Siegel and Nanjiani executive produce alongside Dylan Sellers, Jenni Konner, Matt Shakman, Emily V. Gordon, Nora Silver and Rajiv Joseph, who wrote the series along with Mehar Sethi.
Welcome to Chippendales starts streaming November 22 on Hulu.
