Call your stylist, bring your best finery to the dry cleaners and … maybe set your funeral attire to the side as well?
Today, Hulu has unveiled an official trailer and key art for the upcoming limited anthology rom-com series FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL from Mindy Kaling. After dazzling audiences with her performance as Amita for Gary Ross‘ crime comedy OCEAN’S 8, and arriving as a hip new talk show writer for Emma Thompson‘s Katherine Newbury in LATE NIGHT, Kaling has assembled Zoe Boyle, Nathalie Emmanuel, Guz Khan, Sophia La Porta, Harish Patel, Nikesh Patel, John Reynolds, Rebecca Rittenhouse and Brandon Mychal Smith for a fresh take on director Mike Newell‘s original 1994 British romantic comedy.
Here’s the official synopsis for FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL:
Maya (Nathalie Emmanuel), the young communications director for a New York senatorial campaign, receives a wedding invitation from her college schoolmate now living in London. She leaves her professional and personal life behind, in favor of traveling to England and reconnecting with old friends and ends up in the midst of their personal crises. Relationships are forged and broken, political scandals exposed, London social life lampooned, love affairs ignited and doused, and of course there are four weddings… and a funeral.
Written by Mindy Kaling and Matt Warburton, the series is executive produced by Kaling, Tracey Wigfield, Richard Curtis, Matt Warburton, Jonathan Prince, Howard Klein of 3Arts Entertainment, Charlie Grandy, Tristram Shapeero and Charles McDougall (Episodes 1 & 2).
FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL will celebrate its first four episodes on Wednesday, July 31 with new episodes set to boogie to the beat weekly only on Hulu.
