Mindy Kaling’s upcoming limited series for Hulu, “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” has cast Nikesh Patel in one of its lead roles.
The series, inspired by the hit ‘90s romantic comedy of the same name, will follow a young communications director, played by Jessica Williams, as she travels to England and gets mixed up in the lives of her old friends, their relationships, and four weddings — and a funeral.
Rebecca Rittenhouse and John Reynolds have also been cast in key roles.
Patel will play a character named Kash. The actor has been in BBC/Masterpiece Theatre’s “Indian Summer,” and will be seen next in Disney’s “Artemis Fowl,” in which he plays Foaly.
Kaling co-wrote the pilot episode with Matt Warburton. The show is expected to release in 2019.
