I'll tell you what happened here.
The producers of "Y: The last Man" have been trying to find a home for their show for a decade.
Hulu is still a (relatively) new streaming platform. Especially in regards to original content.
They will accept ANYTHING that's pitched to them right now.
Much like Netflix does. Or any streaming platform.
They don't care about the show. They just want a ton of content for people to binge watch.
I've worked with both network executives and streaming platform executives.
Network execs actually care about what's going on their networks. There's limited time to attract viewers to sell advertisements to. Their shows represent them.
Streaming platform execs don't care. At all. They just want it done.
Once they release it, the show will either succeed or fail. Who cares. Not them. They have unlimited space and content and they're gambling that for every 100 shows, 1 will be a hit.
There's nothing more to this. No wokeness.
Just capitalism and survival of the fittest.
Y the last man found someone willing to make their show. It sucked. It failed.
