Sundance doc Homeroom moves into Hulu

Homeroom centres on students at Oakland High School

Disney-owned US streaming service Hulu has bought the US rights to Sundance Festival-selected documentary Homeroom.

The doc is the final part in Peter Nicks’ trilogy of feature docs about healthcare, public justice and education in Oakland, California. Hulu has also bought the rights to the first two films, 2012’s The Waiting Room and 2017’s The Force.

Homeroom focuses on the students at Oakland High School in a year that saw a global pandemic and calls to defund the local police.

The film is exec produced by Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, Laurene Powell Jobs, Davis Guggenheim, Nicole Stott, Jonathan Silberberg, Jen Rainin, Tony Hsieh, Bryn Mooser and Kathryn Everett. Peter Nicks and Sean Havey are producers.

Guggenheim’s Concordia Studio and California prodco Open’hood have collaborated to make the film in association with XTR and Proximity Media, a prodco Coogler and Nicks helped to launch only last week.

Homeroom will debut on Hulu later this year.
