Disney chief Bob Iger, on a call with analysts Thursday morning, said the plan for Hulu is to make it the outlet for more “adult-oriented product” from the Fox companies.

“There’s a lot of Fox intellectual property that fits extremely well into Disney-branded direct-to-consumer services,” Iger said on the call, citing Nat Geo and Marvel. “There’s a lot of product that we believe will be of great use to growing Hulu as it already is. Hulu is a more adult-oriented product [that will benefit from] Fox television production and FX.”

And to think mojo was somewhat lukewarm towards this deal.

I’m pretty sure Matthew Broderick has never seen or heard of the original movie. It’s a Razzy-level performance

We gave it like 30 min and bailed. Yeesh.

I know there's an actual musical of this that is popular...I don't know how true the show was to it, but it certainly didn't make me wanna buy tickets.

They've now tried these live musicals on tv about a half dozen times, and they just don’t work. I wish they could get them right (the more exposure people get to theatre the better), but this formula isn’t working

The Grease one was pretty good, if you enjoy Grease to begin with.

A Christmas Story live was seen by 4.5 million viewers and delivered a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49.

That is really, really bad. It's going to be the lowest rated tv musical since they started doing these again with Sound of Music.

To compare, Grease had 12.2 million viewers and a 4.3 rating.
