Sony Pictures has struck a deal to allow Netflix and Hulu to stream the NBC series ‘Community’ for the next few years.

Netflix will have the global rights to the show and Hulu gains domestic rights.

The series, set at the fictional Greendale Community College, follows ex-lawyer Jeff Winger as he gets his life together after being disbarred for lying about graduating from Columbia University.

The deal is said to have been in the eight-figure range with Netflix paying just a bit more since they secured the global rights to stream the show.
