After ordering Mindy Kaling’s new “Four Weddings and a Funeral” TV series, Hulu adds another show to its 2019 schedule. Comedy “Dollface” stars Kat Dennings, who will also co-produce the project alongside Margot Robbie.
The streaming site has ordered 10 episodes of a new comedy series called “Dollface.” Actress Kat Dennings — who played Max in the CBS comedy “2 Broke Girls” — will take on the lead role. Dennings was quick to share the news on Instagram.
The actress will also join Margot Robbie on the executive production team. The show, created by Jordan Weiss, is scheduled to enter production in 2019 with Ira Ungerleider (“Friends,” “How I Met Your Mother”) as showrunner.
The show will follow the life of a young woman (Dennings), who, after getting dumped by her longtime boyfriend, must deal with her own imagination in order to literally and metaphorically re-enter the world of women and rekindle the female friendships she left behind.
“Reading Jordan’s script was like opening a window into my own brain,” Dennings said in a statement. “I’m so inspired by the stellar team we have around us and the unique world of this show, especially with [director] Matt Spicer at the helm.”
“Dollface” joins the growing list of recently announced series heading to Hulu, including a TV adaptation of the hit 1990s movie, “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” from Mindy Kaling (“The Mindy Project”).
