The project is set up at Hulu, with Kaling writing and executive producing along with her Mindy Project EP Matt Warburton.
Like the film, the show will follow a group of friends whose lives intersect through major life events. Each season will track one particular story arc.
Richard Curtis, who wrote the original movie, Jonathan Prince, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title, which co-produced the feature and Howard Klein, all serve as EPs.
Hulu is now hopping on the very popular bandwagon of mining existing IP for new TV shows.
Four Weddings and a Funeral comes on the heels of NBC landing Sony TV’s Bad Boys spinoff series, which in turn came just days after CBS put a Magnum P.I. reboot into development, joining joining Nancy Drew and Blue Crush, both at NBC, as reboots that are getting a second shot immediately after not going to series last year.
The CW recently revealed they were developing a reboot of Roswell and the network also had a Charmed reboot in the works, though it’s unclear if that one is still being developed.
True Lies is in the works at Fox, which is also developing a female-led reboot/sequel to Kung Fu as well as a female-led spinoff of The Nice Guys called The Nice Girls, and there’s also Starsky and Hutch, which was picked up by Amazon, as well as a reboot of Greatest American Hero and a live-action sitcom of The Jetsons at ABC. HBO is working on a new version of Watchmen with Damon Lindelof at the helm.
