One of our favorite comedians is back—only this time on the big screen. Mindy Kaling premiered her new film Late Night at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and here’s everything we know.
The comedy, written by Kaling and directed by Nisha Ganatra (The Mindy Project), follows a primetime comedy talk show host,Katherine Newbury (played by Emma Thompson). After 30 years on the air, Katherine quickly realizes she needs some serious change if she wants to stay relevant.
Where does Mindy come in? Well, in the writers room (totally fitting).
Katherine (whose Miranda Priestly–like character is giving out some serious The Devil Wears Prada vibes) adds Mindy’s character,Molly, to her male-dominated team. Comedy ensues.
