Hulu has revealed the official trailer for Welcome to Chippendales, the upcoming biographical drama starring Kumail Nanjiani as Chippendale founder Steve Banerjee. The series is scheduled to make its debut on November 22.
The video teases the rise of Banerjee as he builds his own business, which involves providing entertainment to women with male striptease performances. However, as his business grows, he’ll slowly struggle to keep his hold on it all, which ultimately leads to the beginning of his downfall.
Welcome to Chippendales is executive produced by Robert Siegel and Jenni Konner, who are both serving as showrunners. Joining Nanjiani are Murray Bartlett, Juliette Lewis, and Annaleigh Ashford. It will also feature Quentin Plair, Robin de Jesús, Andrew Rannells, Spencer Boldman, Nicola Peltz Beckham, and Dan Stevens.
“A sprawling true-crime saga, the film tells the outrageous story of Somen ‘Steve’ Banerjee, an 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,” reads the synopsis.
Executive producers are Nanjiani, Dylan Sellers, Jenni Konner, Matt Shakman, Emily V. Gordon, Jacqui Rivera, Nora Silver, and Rajiv Joseph, with Annie Wyman set producer. Shakman is also set to direct.
