Jessica Williams, the comedian who rose to stardom as a correspondent on The Daily Show and co-star of the hit podcast "2 Dope Queens" has booked an exciting new role! She will be the lead in a new Hulu mini-series called Four Weddings And A Funeral. It will be Produced by Mindy Kaling, and is an extended remake from the 1994 film starring Hugh Grant.
(Via The Hollywood Reporter):
"Jess (Williams), the young communications director for a New York senatorial campaign, who 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."
The series is expected to debut in 2019, and I'm excited!
