Hulu is bringing the classic romantic comedy Four Weddings and a Funeral to its platform with the help of Mindy Kaling and Matt Warburton. The new updated story will centre on Maya (Nathalie Emmanuel), a young communications director for a New York senatorial campaign, who receives a wedding invitation from her college schoolmate now living in London.
She leaves her professional and personal life behind, in favour 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.
Four Weddings and a Funeral is executive produced by Kaling, Warburton, Tracey Wigfield, Richard Curtis, Jonathan Prince, Howard Klein of 3Arts Entertainment, Charlie Grandy, Tristram Shapeero and Charles McDougall (Ep. 1 & 2). The series is produced by MGM Television and Universal Television, with MGM serving as the lead studio.
