LATE NIGHT | feat. Mindy Kaling
In addition to our episode featuring Julianne Moore all about her new film Gloria Bell, we've got a bonus episode for you! We speak to Mindy Kaling, the creator of 'The Mindy Project' and now writer and co-star of 'Late Night' - the story of a late night comedy TV host and her revamped writers room.
Late Night is the story of Katherine (Emma Thompson on acidly winning form), a TV host in desperate need to stay relevant. Cynically hiring Molly (Mindy Kaling, The Mindy Project, Ocean's 8), she thrusts her into the all-male writers' room. But Molly is looking to make more than surface changes. Along with laughs come deeper questions about sexism and diversity in the entertainment industry. Kaling's script has the sharpness of lived experience, as well as the comic chops to make the stand up segments sing. With a sprinkling of The Devil Wears Prada, Late Night mixes great chemistry with a forward-looking take on complex issues.
