Hulu debuts first trailer for comedy series Ramy
Following its debut at South by Southwest’s “Episodic Premieres” showcase, Hulu has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming comedy series Ramy created by and starring Ramy Youssef, which can be viewed in the player below!
The series, co-created by Youssef, Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch, follows a first generation Egyptian-American who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood. The series looks to bring a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like being caught between a Muslim community that thinks life is a moral test and a millennial generation that thinks life has no consequences.
Youssef also stars in the series alongside Mohammed Amer (Crashing), Hiam Abbass (Blade Runner 2049), Amr Waked (Lucy), May Calamawy (The Long Road Home), Dave Merheje (We Are Disorderly), Laith Nakli (24: Legacy) and Steve Way.
Ramy‘s first season, which consists of ten episodes and is executive produced by Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show), Ravi Nandan from A24, showrunner Bridget Bedard, Katcher and Welch, will premiere on Hulu on April 19.
