Young filmmaker Nuhash Humayun is now taking Bangladeshi content to the international arena. Nuhash's “Foreigners Only” is going to be aired on US-based OTT platform, Hulu in this October.
This is the first time Bangladeshi content is being released on Hulu.
The episode was produced in both Bangla and English, with Nuhash serving as both the director and screenwriter.
He produced the 15-minute drama as an episode of the third season of Hulu’s anthology series ‘Bite Size Halloween’. Iresh Zaker and Mustafa Manowar played the two main roles in the drama filmed in several locations in Dhaka.
The series consists of 20 episodes of 15-20 minutes in length, made by producers from different countries around the world. The entire series will come to Hulu on October 1.
Nuhash got signed by the Hollywood agencies Anonymous Content and Creative Artists Agency (CAA) earlier this year. Through these two agencies, he got connected with Hulu.
Speaking on being associated with Hulu's project, Nuhash said, "After evaluating some of my works, they gave me this project. When I went to Hulu's office in Los Angeles, I was a bit nervous. However, the meeting was quite positive. They appreciated all my plans, and that raised my confidence."
Nuhash has already released the poster of the movie on Facebook. He also gave some ideas about the story of the play.
"Some houses in Gulshan, Banani area are rented only for foreigners, natives do not get rent. I have created the content on this subject," he said.
