Thrills, comedy and social commentary provide a potent brew in this adaptation of Zakiya Dalila Harris’s New York Times bestselling novel. Like the sound of Get Out in an office? Then read our guide below where we explain how to watch The Other Black Girl online, exclusive to Hulu in the U.S..

The Other Black Girl streaming details

The Other Black Girl arrives on streaming from Wednesday, Sep. 20.
Time: 12:01 a.m. PT / 3:01 a.m. ET / 8:01 a.m. BST / 5:01 p.m. AEST
Where: Hulu in the U.S. and Disney Plus internationally.

Harris’s debut novel was hot property even before its 2021 publication. The TV rights were snapped up by Hulu in advance of the frenzied bidding war in which publishing house Atria paid $1 million dollars to acquire the workplace thriller.

Based on the author’s own experience, The Other Black Girl explores the daily grind of micro-aggressions, racial marginalization and tokenism in the predominantly white world of publishing. It’s a reality told through the prism of a gripping conspiracy thriller with diverse inspirations including contemporary horror Get Out and Nella Larson’s 1929 novel Passing.

Sinclair Daniel plays the hard-working Nella, tired of being the sole Black employee in an otherwise white environment. She’s understandably elated, then, when proud Harlemite Hazel (Ashleigh Murray) joins the ranks at Wagner Books. Yet Hazel’s arrival coincides with some increasingly odd occurrences. As paranoia regarding her colleagues grows, she and best friend Malaika (Brittany Adebumola) start to discover the company’s sinister history.
