James Franco’s documentary on Saturday Night Live—not to be confused with somebody else’s documentary on James Franco,—will make its streaming premiere tomorrow on Hulu. Saturday Night was initially produced as a project for one of Franco’s NYU film classes and is three hours of James Franco watching SNL sketches on YouTube an inside look at the day-to-day operations of SNL, from late-night writing sessions to the part where everyone hugs and makes small talk as the credits roll. The documentary takes place during the week of December 1-6, 2008 and documents Christopher Walken’s seventh time hosting the show. Saturday Night screened at SXSW and the Tribeca Film Festival in 2010, but has never been released commercially; the grade James Franco received for the film is unknown.
