SANTA MONICA, Calif. (April 29, 2022) – Beginning May 1, “OLIVIA RODRIGO: driving home 2 u (a SOUR film)” will be available to stream on Hulu, marking the film’s availability across both Disney+ and Hulu. Additionally, the film will make its linear debut on Freeform on Saturday, May 14, at 9:55 p.m.
“As the first anniversary of “SOUR” approaches, we are excited to bring Hulu subscribers this intimate look at the making of Olivia Rodrigo’s heralded debut album,” said Joe Earley, president of Hulu. “‘driving home 2 u’ is beautifully filmed, with captivating performances, and revealing moments about Olivia’s creative process, which we know will thrill viewers on Disney+, Hulu and Freeform.”
“This is a great example of how The Walt Disney Company’s unparalleled reach enables us to connect content to multiple audiences across both streaming and our linear television networks,” said Chuck Saftler, head of Business Operations for ABC, Freeform, FX Networks, and Acquisitions in Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution’s Networks division. “We think that Olivia’s personal and artistic journey in making ‘SOUR’ will perfectly connect with Freeform’s young adult audience and we are excited to be able to bring them this one-night only viewing event.”
The wider availability of the film follows its successful March 25 launch on Disney+ and Rodrigo’s three wins, including Best New Artist, at the 64th Annual Grammy(R) Awards on April 3.

Through new live arrangements of her songs, intimate interviews and never-before-seen footage from the making of the album, audiences will follow Olivia along on a cinematic journey exploring the story of “SOUR.”
