Mindy Kaling is developing an anthology series remake of the 1994 romantic comedy ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’.

Similar to the film, the series will follow a group of friends as their lives intersect through the five events. Each season will center on a different story arc.

The American actor, comedian and writer is the creator and star of the television sitcom ‘The
Mindy Project’. She is also known for her work on the popular NBC sitcom ‘The Office’.

Kaling will pen the remake of ‘Four Weddings...’ with ‘Mindy Project’ showrunner Matt Warburton.

The two will executive produce the series with the original film’s writer, Richard Curtis, Working Title’s Jonathan Prince, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner and 3 Arts’ Howard Klein.

The project comes as ‘The Mindy Project’ heads closer to its November 14 series finale.

‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’, starring Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell, grossed more than $245 million worldwide when it was released in 1994.
