Hulu is padding its growing list of exclusive SVOD rights to primetime series.

The streaming service announced Tuesday that previous seasons of Fox series “The Mindy Project” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will be available only on Hulu Plus (and not rivals Netflix or Amazon Prime).  

In addition, a slew of series from NBC Universal-owned cable channels Bravo and E! will make backlogs of previous episodes from long-running series available only on Hulu Plus as well, including “Millionaire Matchmaker,” “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” “Top Chef,” “Top Chef Masters” and “Flipping Out.”

Hulu has been loading up on the exclusives as of late, including CBS’s “Elementary” and ABC’s “Nashville.”

Hulu Plus will also get “Parks & Recreation” on a non-exclusive basis.

Perhaps not coincidentally, NBC Universal and 21st Century Fox are two of three companies that have a stake in Hulu, along with Disney. Both “Brooklyn” and “Mindy” are produced by Universal Television.
