WATCH: Kumail Nanjiani Starts a Male-Stripping Empire in Welcome to Chippendales Teaser

The Hulu limited series tells the true, unexpectedly blood-soaked story of the notorious male revue show.
  • Chippendales is getting the drama treatment. 

    In the first teaser for Hulu limited series Welcome to Chippendales, Kumail Nanjiani stars as Somen "Steve" Banerjee, an Indian immigrant who becomes the unlikely founder of the iconic male revue show. The road to the successful stripping empire is not an easy one, however, and Banerjee is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his dreams. 

    "You can't take this personally," Nanjiani says, as a bloody crime scene fills the screen. "This is business."

    Also starring recent Emmy winner Murray Bartlett (The White Lotus), Juliette Lewis (Yellowjackets), Annaleigh Ashford (Impeachment: American Crime Story), Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Andrew Rannells (Girls5Eva), and a slew of other stars, Welcome to Chippendales will depict a "sprawling true-crime saga" across its eight episodes. 

    Welcome to Chippendales premieres on Hulu November 22.
