Jessica Williams, the former Daily Showcorrespondent who's gone on to become a leading lady and one of the podcast-to-TV phenoms in 2 Dope Queens, has signed on to lend her talents to Hulu's adaptation of Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Hulu announced Friday that Williams will play Jess, a communications director for a New York senatorial campaign, who throws up the deuces to her life in New York after getting an invitation to a wedding in London. She goes to travel in the U.K. with her buddies only to end up in the midst of their personal crises.
The series is based on the 1994 rom-com starring Hugh Grant but will look a bit different: produced by Mindy Kaling, the series will also star Nikesh Patel (Indian Summers), Kaling's former Mindy Project co-star Rebecca Rittenhouse and Search Partyactor John Reynolds.
Four Weddings and a Funeral is slated to debut on Hulu in 2019.
