The much-beloved British romantic comedy Four Weddings and a Funeral is coming back to the small screen, as a TV adaptation from The Mindy Project actress, writer, and executive producer Mindy Kaling.

The new version of the 1994 classic will reportedly be an hour-long anthology series, and Kaling reportedly worked with her producing partner Matt Warburton on the project, as well as Richard Curtis, who wrote the original film, among others.

According to Deadline, which broke the news of the project, "Like the movie, the Four Weddings and a Funeral series follows a group of friends as their lives intersect through these five events, with each season following a different story arc." 

It was recently reported that Jessica Williams will star as Jess, a young communications director in New York who leaves her life in the States and her career to attend a wedding in London, but now, Deadline is reporting that the role has been recast and renamed. Nathalie Emmanuel will now play the lead character, whose name has been changed from Jess to Maya.

The publication is also reporting that Andie MacDowell, who starred in the original film, will have a role in the remake.

Nikesh Patel, Rebecca Rittenhouse, and John Reynolds have also been tapped for the Hulu series.

The show is expected to premiere next year, but no word yet on whether Hugh Grant will make an appearance.
