Hulu just announced a bunch of news, including series orders for comedies from Mindy Kaling and Ramy Youssef. First up is an order for a limited series written and executive produced by Kaling and Matt Warburton based on the 1994 romantic comedy Four Weddings and a Funeral, which will follow “a group of friends as their lives intersect through five events” and mark Kaling’s second Hulu project since The Mindy Project, which ended its six-season run last year.
Next up is a series order for a semi-autobiographical comedy from Ramy Youssef titled Ramy,which has been in development since October 2017. Executive produced by Jerrod Carmichael and starring Youssef, the series “takes viewers into the world of Ramy, a first generation American Muslim who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood. Ramy will bring a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like being caught in between an Egyptian community that thinks life is moral a test, and a millennial generation that thinks life has no consequences.”
