Kumail Nanjiani in Hulu's 'Welcome to Chippendales' Official Trailer
"Repeat after me: things are going incredibly well, and I'm not going to blow it." Hulu has debuted a full official trailer for Welcome To Chippendales, debuting this fall during Thanksgiving week. Yet another true-crime saga, Welcome to Chippendales 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. There's so much to this story! Kumail Nanjiani stars as Steve, who ended up getting embroiled in murder and more crime years after starting the revue in 1979. Murray Bartlett co-stars as the producer / choreographer Nick De Noia, a charming, fast-talking New Yorker. De Noia helped transform Chippendales from a seedy male strip joint in West LA to the global juggernaut it would one day become, but also ended up fighting with Banerjee about the business. The cast also features Annaleigh Ashford, Juliette Lewis, Andrew Rannells, Dan Stevens, Quentin Plair, Robin de Jesús, with Nicola Peltz. This looks great!! What a story - bouncing from success to murder and everything inbetween.
