Late Night — New Official Trailer


added: Wed, May 1st '19

Emma Thompson is celebrated late-night talk show host Katherine Newbury. Mindy Kaling is Molly Patel, a fledgling comedy writer who's just been hired to work on Katherine's all-male writing staff.

When she faces the very real possibility of cancellation, Katherine is left with no other choice but to turn to Molly for fresh ideas and new comedy bits. To their surprise, they make a wonderful ratings-generating duo.

Check out a brand-new official trailer for "Late Night," the crowd-pleasing Sundance hit, which was also written and produced by Mindy Kaling, who, in fact, wrote the role specifically for Emma Thompson. And since premiering at Sundance earlier this year, critics are already predicting Thompson could pick up acting nominations during the forthcoming awards season.

The supporting cast includes John Lithgow (Pet Sematary), Amy Ryan (The Office), Denis O'Hare (American Horror Story), Max Casella (Vinyl), Paul Walter Hauser (I, Tonya), Reid Scott (Veep), and Hugh Dancy (Hannibal)

The comedy is directed by television helmer Nisha Ganatra, whose credits include directing episodes of "The Mindy Project," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," "Better Things," and "Transparent."

Acquired by Amazon Studios, "Late Night" is slated for a theatrical release on June 7th.

Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a pioneer and legendary host on the late-night talk-show circuit. When she's accused of being a "woman who hates women," she puts affirmative action on the to-do list, and -- presto! -- Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling) is hired as the one woman in Katherine's all-male writers' room.

But Molly might be too little too late, as the formidable Katherine also faces the reality of low ratings and a network that wants to replace her. Molly, wanting to prove she's not simply a diversity hire who's disrupting the comfort of the brotherhood, is determined to help Katherine by revitalizing her show and career -- and possibly effect even bigger change at the same time.
