Hulu's 'Handmaid's Tale' Airs Super Bowl Commercial (Video)

A new trailer for the upcoming Hulu television series The Handmaid’s Tale debuted during the 2017 Super Bowl tonight and you can check out the commercial right here!

Elisabeth Moss stars in the show with Alexis Bledel, Samira Wiley, Yvonne Strahovski, and more.

The Handmaid’s Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values’. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.

The upcoming television series was adapted from the classic novel by Canadian author Margaret Atwood.
