If you're a Hulu subscriber who loves documentaries, the streaming service is adding a bunch of those films to its library. Hulu nabbed the exclusive streaming rights to future IFC Films, Sundance Selects and IFC Midnight Documentary Films in the first window following theatrical and on-demand releases. The deal means that the streaming service will be the home to IFC's new documentaries starting this fall.

The first film to arrive on Hulu is King Georges, a documentary that follows the struggle of Georges Perrier to keep his world-renowned French restaurant relevant after 40 years. Hulu will also stream Weiner following its run on Showtime, the Sundance Selects documentary about Anthony Weiner and his failed bid for NYC Mayor. For now, have a look at the trailer for King Georges down below.
