Battleground will be in the faux workplace documentary-style, exploring the behind-the-scenes chaos of campaign workers and volunteers in a Wisconsin state Senate race. The weekly series centers on the character Chris "Tak" Davis, the campaign manger of a distant third-place candidate, as he tries to overcome corrupt politicians and staff in fighting to win the primary.
The series is executive produced by JD Walsh, Hagai Shaham and Marc Webb.
Another new edition jioning Hulu's original programming slate this summer is Up To Speed, a docu-series from filmmaker Richard Linklater. Each week the series will follow quirky tour guide Timothy "Speed" Levitch as he visits the ignored monuments of American cities.
Hulu has also renewed its first original series, Morgan Spurlock's documentary series A Day in the Life, which will return for a 10-episode second season in March. In season two, Spurlock will capture the daily routines of highly motivated individuals like actor Joel McHale, comedian Marc Maron and UFC fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller.
