LOS ANGELES, CA – Mindy Kaling is returning to Hulu, according to Deadline, six and a half years after the conclusion of The Mindy Project, with a new single-camera comedy titled Murray Hill.

The project, produced by Warner Bros. TV under Kaling’s overall deal, was presented to buyers at the beginning of the year and generated significant interest in the competitive market, ultimately landing at Hulu with a script-to-series commitment, Deadline said.

Murray Hill, written by Kaling, follows the lives of five ambitious twenty-somethings who prioritize professional success and, if time permits, personal fulfillment in Manhattan’s upscale neighborhood of Murray Hill.

Kaling serves as executive producer through her company, Kaling International, in association with Warner Bros. TV, alongside Howard Klein from 3 Arts Entertainment. Jessica Kumai Scott from Kaling International acts as co-executive producer.

This collaboration marks a reunion between Kaling and Hulu, which previously rescued The Mindy Project in 2015 after its cancellation by Fox. The series, a workplace/romantic comedy, continued for three more seasons on Hulu, becoming one of the platform’s early original hits.

Craig Erwich, then Hulu’s SVP and Head of Content, spearheaded the initiative into original programming and currently oversees Hulu’s original slate as president of Disney Television Group, Deadline reported.

Erwich expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, stating, “Mindy has been a beloved member of the Hulu family, so this deal is a natural extension of our relationship,” upon the pickup of The Mindy Project in 2015.

Since The Mindy Project, Kaling has co-created and developed successful series like Never Have I Ever for Netflix, and The Sex Lives of College Girls and Velma for HBO Max. Murray Hill marks her return to solo creatorship for the first time since The Mindy Project.
