Mindy Kaling is working on bringing a Four Weddings And A Funeral TV show to Hulu…

Four Weddings And A Funeral appears to be heading to the small screen. 

A series based on the Hugh Grant-starring romantic comedy smash hit is in the works at Hulu, written and produced by the wonderful Mindy Kaling and Matt Warburton, Deadline reports.

Richard Curtis, who wrote the 1994 film, will be executive producing alongside the pair, and Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title will also be overseeing the show’s development. MGM TV have the rights to the property, and they’ve struck a deal with Universal to work on the project with Kaling.

The general proposal (sorry) is that the TV version will be an anthology series following a group of pals whose lives intersect through four weddings and, yes, a funeral. The lead character may well always remain the same, but the people and locations around them could change from season to season. It would probably make more sense to change the main character as well, but we’ll have to see what Kaling and Warburton ultimately settle on.

It’s surprising that a TV incarnation of the movie has taken this long to come to fruition, frankly – Four Weddings And A Funeral didn’t just get rave reviews upon its release, it clocked up a staggering $246 million off a $3.7 million budget, so it’s always been ripe for all manner or remakes or reboots.

Just as long as we never have to hear Love Is All Around ever, ever again haha…!

…it’s going to be the theme song, isn’t it?

More as we have it.
