Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

Late Night was one of Sundance’s biggest success stories, with Mindy Kaling’s comedy selling to Amazon Studios for a gobsmacking $13 million. Kaling wrote and stars in the film, which follows her struggling writer as she joins the all-male writers’ room of an ailing late-night show hosted by an acerbic Emma Thompson.

John Lithgow, Hugh Dancy, Amy Ryan, and Kaling’s The Mindy Project co-star Ike Barinholtz co-star, while TV director Nisha Ganatra (Girls, Mr. Robot) makes her feature directorial debut.


Watch the full trailer above ahead of the film’s June 7 premiere.
