'Never Have I Ever': Watch the Trailer for Mindy Kaling's Netflix Comedy Series
Prepare to be transported to Mindy Kaling's world.
Netflix on Wednesday released the first-look trailer at Never Have I Ever, the semi-autobiographical series based on the actress, writer and producer's life.
Newcomer Maitreyi Ramakrishnan — who landed the lead role after an open casting call that drew 15,000 responses — stars in the coming-of-age comedy about the complicated life of a modern-day, first-generation Indian American teenage girl. She plays Devi, an overachieving high school sophomore who has a short fuse that gets her into difficult situations.
Kaling created Never Have I Ever and executive produces alongside Lang Fisher (The Mindy Project), with the latter serving as writer and showrunner. The 10-episode project hails from Universal Television, where Kaling was under an overall deal before moving it to Warner Bros. TV.
Sendhil Ramamurthy co-stars in the series, which is narrated by John McEnroe (yes, really).
Never Have I Ever is set to premiere April 27 on Netflix.
