One of Hulu’s coolest new series is the series is “Into the Dark“, which delivers a feature-length holiday-themed episode once a month. The first episode, “The Body” was set on Halloween. We interviewed Tembi Locke about the Thanksgiving set episode titled “Flesh and Blood”. Now, it’s nearing time for the third episode to premiere.
December’s episode, “Pooka“, follows a struggling actor (Nyasha Hatendi) who gets a temp job as the Christmas character in a plush suit to promote Pooka, the hottest toy of the year. At first, it’s not a bad gig, but as time goes by Pooka slowly takes over.
Dale Dickey, Isabelle Bates, Jonny Berryman, April Campion, Gene Freeman, Nyasha Hatendi, Cliff Weissman, and Katie Wilson co-star in “Pooka”, directed by Nacho Vigalondo and written by Gerald Olson.
“Into the Dark: Pooka” premieres on December 5th on Hulu.
