Mindy Kaling Returns to Hulu With ‘Murray Hill’ Comedy

Mindy Kaling is plotting a return to Hulu.

The Disney-owned streamer has landed Kaling’s next comedy series, an ensemble show titled Murray Hill. Hulu outbid several other outlets and has given a script-to-series commitment for the show, which is set in the titular Manhattan neighborhood and will follow five work-obsessed 20-somethings striving for professional success and, if they have time, personal happiness.

Warner Bros. TV, where Kaling has an overall deal, is producing the project. Kaling is writing the script and will executive produce via her Kaling International banner. Howard Klein of 3 Arts Entertainment also exec produces; Kaling International’s Jessica Kumai Scott is a co-EP.

Murray Hill marks a return to Hulu for Kaling, which picked up her comedy series The Mindy Project after Fox canceled it in 2015. The series ran for three additional seasons and 50 episodes on Hulu before ending in 2017. She also co-created and executive produced a limited series adaptation of Four Weddings and a Funeral that ran on the streamer in 2019.

In addition to Murray Hill, Kaling has a Netflix comedy series starring Kate Hudson and inspired by the life of Los Angeles Lakers president Jeanie Buss in the works. She’s also the co-creator and executive producer of Max’s The Sex Lives of College Girls, whose third season is slated for later this year. Kaling is repped by CAA and 3 Arts.
