Check out the trailer for Four Weddings and a Funeral, an upcoming series adaptation of the 1994 romantic comedy starring Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell.
The series, which comes from Mindy Kaling (The Office, The Mindy Project) and Matt Warburton (The Simpsons, The Mindy Project), follows a New York communications director (Game of Thrones actress Nathalie Emmanuel) that heads to England to attend her college schoolmate’s wedding. She leaves her New York life behind to explore England and catch up with friends, and soon finds herself involved in their personal ups and downs.
No, we never needed a series redo of the ’94 classic, but this could work well. Kaling is a talented writer, and there’s an amiable cast and overall tone shown off in the trailer below. A few familiar faces pop up, including MacDowell and Dermot Mulroney. We’ll see.
Four Weddings and a Funeral, which also stars Nikesh Patel, Rebecca Rittenhouse, and John Paul Reynolds, will be premiering on Hulu July 31st.
Official synopsis for Four Weddings and a Funeral:
Maya, 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.
