Four Weddings and a Funeral - Anthology from Mindy Kaling Inspired by British Movie in Development at Hulu

EXCLUSIVE: A romantic comedy classic, Four Weddings and a Funeral, is headed to television. Hulu is developing an hourlong anthology series inspired by the the 1994 British movie to be written and executive produced by The Mindy Project creator, executive producer and star Mindy Kaling and executive producer Matt Warburton.

The duo executive produce with Richard Curtis, who wrote the movie, Jonathan Prince, who was instrumental in putting the project together, as well as Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title, which co-produced the feature, and 3 Arts’ Howard Klein (The Mindy Project). MGM Television, which owns the rights to the movie, is producing with Universal TV where Kaling is based.

Like the movie, Four Weddings and a Funeral the series follows a group of friends as their lives intersect through these five events, with each season following a different story arc. It is still early in the process but I hear there is an idea to have different characters in a different location each season, with the lead possibly remaining the same.

I hear Kaling and Warburton are working on two scripts. A decision on a potential straight-to-series order is expected to be made by Hulu early next year.
