After four years in limbo, fans will finally get a chance to see James Franco‘s Saturday Night Live documentary this weekend. Saturday Night will hit Hulu Plus on Friday September 26, marking the end of a long road for the comedy documentary.
Back in 2009/2019, Franco spent a week watching the then cast of Saturday Night Live put together an episode for one of his NYU film classes.

Saturday Night premiered at South by Southwest in 2010 to solid reviews and got picked up for distribution. However, complicated rights issues and red tape locked the film up for some time.
