‘It’s going to be insane. It’s about the patriarchy…as expressed through medicine,’ Glazer said on the podcast.

The Hulu deal for False Positive also extends ties between indie movie studio A24 and Hulu, a pact which includes the hit TV series Ramy.

Hulu’s original film slate has grown considerably this year, with critically-acclaimed films such as Palm Springs, Bad Hair, Happiest Season and Run.
