'Chippendales Drama ‘Immigrant’ Starring Kumail Nanjiani Takes Off At Hulu'


Kumail Nanjiani is to star in and exec produce a drama limited series about the origin story of stripper troupe Chippendales.

The Silicon Valley star, who wrote The Big Sick with his wife Emily V. Gordon, has teamed up with Pam & Tommy creator Robert Siegel on Immigrant for Hulu.

The streamer has given the eight-episode project a straight-to-series order. It is the true story of Somen “Steve” Banerjee, an Indian American entrepreneur who started the Chippendales. Nanjiani will play Banerjee.

The series will detail the insane, darkly comedic, crime-ridden story behind the unique male revue that became a cultural phenomenon.
