Charli D’Amelio is definitely having a moment. The girl has 123.6 million followers on TikTok and 43.5 million followers on Instagram, and those numbers will only continue to grow as her platform does. So it’s really no surprise that Hulu tapped her—and her fam—to influence the masses on actual television. That’s right, y’all: Charli, her sis Dixie D’Amelio, and their parents are getting the reality TV show treatment with The D’Amelio Show, which debuts today. The show “navigates their sudden rise to fame.” Wish I could relate, but…¯_(ツ)_/¯.
“Two years ago, Charli and Dixie D’Amelio were virtually unknown outside of their town, and now [they] have over 100 million fans who tune in daily for their every move. Every teen on social media dreams of becoming famous, but what happens when the reality hits?” said Belisa Balaban, VP of documentaries at Hulu, said in a statement. “The D’Amelio Show joins our growing slate of docuseries about the human experience and we’re incredibly excited to partner with the D’Amelio family to offer viewers an authentic look at the complicated lives of these two relatable young women thrust to the top of the social media algorithm.”
The D’Amelio Show is finally out now, so let’s dig into the details of the show, shall we?
First things first: How are the D’Amelios feeling about all this?
This kinda goes without saying, but everyone’s pretty stoked! When Deadline shared the news last year, D’Amelio patriarch Mark told the outlet, “We are excited to be joining the Hulu family with a unique behind-the-scenes look into our life.…We’ve always been a very close family, but this experience has brought us even closer and we’re really excited to share a glimpse of our lives with the world. Many people create impressions of us based off of short content, a few minutes or even seconds. But now, we’re looking forward to sharing a side that you likely don’t get to see on our social channels.”
Charli also talked about her feelings while chatting with Teen Vogue in February. “It’s something that I never expected I would be doing,” she said. “I’m just excited to show people the whole family dynamic and what our lives are like when the cameras aren’t on.”

Dixie, on the other hand, is a little nervous. During her Vogue 24 Hours With… video, Dixie explained why she was feeling a little apprehensive about filming. “I make a lot of mistakes and I know it’s all going to be caught on camera now,” she said. “The only thing I’m nervous about is Charli and I’s relationship being shown because we have a really good relationship, but we do get in normal sister arguments. We’re just siblings and that’s how we act.”
When can I watch The D’Amelio Show?
Lucky for you, you can catch TikTok’s First Family now!. The show officially launched on Friday, September 3, so you can check out the episodes on Hulu.
Is there a trailer I can watch first?
Of course. After a long wait, Hulu finally unveiled the trailer for The D’Amelio Show earlier in 2021, and you can watch it before diving into the series. Here you go:
