Hulu has set a week-long British binge-cation with five shows from across the pond debuting the last week of July.

First up is Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On, a cooking show from renowned chef Jamie Oliver that features easy-to-follow recipes, ingredient swaps, and tips to inspire people staying at home. After premiering on Channel 4 in March, the COVID-friendly series, filmed on Jamie’s and his family’s phones, makes its Hulu debut Monday, July 27th.

Tuesday, July 28th sees the debut of music industry comedy Maxxx. From O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid’s Tale, Looking), the series follows the eponymous former boy band star (Fagbenle) as he seeks the personal and professional redemption that a full-scale musical comeback could bring. In order to make that happen, Maxxx attempts to convince his former manager (Christopher Meloni) to take him back so that he can prove to his fans, critics, loved ones, and himself that he still has what it takes to be a star.

In addition to Fagbenle and Meloni, Maxxx stars Helen Monks (Raised by Wolves), Javone Prince (Find Me in Paris), Jourdan Dunn (Zoolander 2), and Pippa Bennett-Warner (Harlots).

Liam Williams comedy Ladhood continues the Binge-cation on Wednesday, July 29th. The well-received series, already renewed for a second season, details the experiences of young Liam (Oscar Kennedy) and his school friends Tom (Shaun Thomas), Ralph (Samuel Bottomley), and Adnan (Aqib Khan) while exploring the roots of modern-day masculinity.

In addition to Kennedy, Alexander, Bottomley, and Khan, Ladhood stars Lily Frazier (Cuckoo) and Andrew Alexander (Downton Abbey), with Williams overlooking the events on screen and commenting on them.

Acclaimed Kayleigh Llewellyn series In My Skin makes its American premiere on Thursday, July 30th. The five-episode first season centers on 16-year-old Bethan (Gabrielle Creevy) dealing with the insecurities and anxieties that come with adolescence, as well as attempting to keep her friends from finding out the truth about her home life.

In addition to Creevy, In My Skin stars James Wilbraham (Pobol y cwm), Poppy Lee Friar (Ackley Bridge), Jo Hartley (After Life), Aled ap Steffan (Gangs of London), Di Botcher (Casualty), and Rhodri Meilir (35 Diwrnod).

The Hulu British Binge-cation closes out on Friday, July 31st with the complete first season of Brassic. The acclaimed Sky comedy focuses on the co-dependent friendship between bipolar Lancashire lad Vinnie (Joe Gilgun) and razor-smart Dylan (Damien Molony), the latter afflicted with a major case of arrested development. The series finds the duo’s peer group beginning to splinter as some wonder whether there’s more to life outside of their small town.

In addition to Gilgun and Molony, Brassic stars Michelle Keegan (Our Girl), Tom Hanson (The Tunnel), Aaron Heffernan (War of the Worlds), Ryan Sampson (Plebs), and Parth Thakerar (Gangs of London).
