30 Rock has found a new streaming home.

The Tina Fey comedy and acclaimed family drama Parenthood are two of the shows headed to Hulu as part of a massive SVOD deal between NBCUniversal and the streaming company, it was announced Wednesday.

As part of the pact, Hulu also will also premiere the new Paul Reiser period comedy There’s Johnny, set against the backdrop of the Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, that was originally set to debut on NBC’s soon-to-be-defunct streaming app Seeso. Other shows included in the agreement are Syfy’s reality competition series Face Off and the UK series Made in Chelsea.

NBC famously tried to its own streaming platform, the comedy-heavy Seeso, in 2016. The niche brand offered originals like The UCB Show, Take My Wife and Bajillion Dollar Properties, as well as episodes of classic NBC comedies like Parks and Recreation and Saturday Night Live. However, it was confirmed on Aug. 9 that the streaming service would be shut down by the end of 2017.

News of Seeso’s impending demise came just weeks before the originally scheduled Aug. 24 launch of There’s Johnny, which hails from exec producer Paul Reiser and stars Tony Danza. Subsequently, the premiere was delayed as producers had been trying to find a new home for the period comedy.
