Netflix unveiled the title, release dates, and first looks for some of its upcoming shows during their upfronts presentation on Wednesday, including Mindy Kaling’s much-awaited comedy series, Running Point.

The 10-episode series stars Kate Hudson in the lead role. It sees Netflix reteaming with Kaling, who works at Warner Bros. Television under an overall deal, with their previous project together being the smash-hit series Never Have I Ever.

The official logline reads: “When a scandal forces her brother to resign, Isla Gordon is appointed President of the Los Angeles Waves, one of the most storied professional basketball franchises, and her family business. Ambitious and often overlooked, Isla will have to prove to her skeptical brothers, the board, and the larger sports community that she was the right choice for the job, especially in the unpredictable, male-dominated world of sports.”

In addition to Hudson, Running Point also stars Brenda Song, Chet Hanks, Drew Tarver, Fabrizio Guido, Keyla Monterroso Mejia, Max Greenfield, Scott MacArthur, Toby Sandeman, Roberto Sanchez, Uche Agada, and Dane DiLiegro.

It is written and produced by Kaling, Ike Barinholtz, and David Stassen through Kaling International and Warner Bros. Television.

Filming in Los Angeles, the project got underway in late February 2024 with its scheduled wrap due to take place this week.

James Ponsoldt has directed the first two episodes.
