Mindy first premiered her screenwriting debut Late Night at 2019 Sundance Film Festival, which stars Emma Thompson, Reid Scott, Ike Barinholtz, Amy Ryan, John Lithgow and Mindy herself.
In the movie, Molly Patel (Kaling) is a new writer for Tonight, a late night show fronted by veteran host Katherine Newbury (Thompson). Faced with the prospect of being kicked off her own show, Newbury needs to liven up her stale routine. Specifically, she needs a woman to join her all-male writers’ room and brings on Patel, a comedy fan who works in a chemical plant. She helps transform the show, along with Newbury’s approach to her public self.
The movie will hit theaters on June 7.
