Hulu has released the official trailer and poster for the upcoming limited anthology rom-com series Four Weddings and a Funeral from Mindy Kaling. The series stars Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey), Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones), Guz Khan (Turn Up Charlie), Sophia La Porta (The Five), Harish Patel (Coronation Street), Nikesh Patel (Indian Summers), John Reynolds (Stranger Things), Rebecca Rittenhouse (The Mindy Project) and Brandon Mychal Smith (Get On Up). Plus, don’t blink or you’ll miss a cameo from Andie MacDowell, who starred in the original 1994 film version, which earned two Oscar nominations, including Best Picture.
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.
The Four Weddings and a Funeral pilot script is written by Mindy Kaling and Matt Warburton. The series is executive produced by Mindy Kaling, Tracey Wigfield, Richard Curtis, Matt Warburton, 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.
Four Weddings and a Funeral premieres the first four episodes Wednesday, July 31 and new episodes weekly only on Hulu.
