Jes­sica Wil­liams (“2 Dope Queens,” “Fan­tas­tic Beasts”), Nikesh Patel (“Lon­don Has Fallen”), Re­becca Rit­ten­house (“The Mindy Project”) and John Reynolds (“Stranger Things”) round out the cast of Hulu’s up­com­ing ro­man­tic com­edy se­ries, set to de­but in 2019, the sub­scrip­tion ser­vice an­nounced Fri­day.

In­spired by Mike Newell’s epony­mous 1994 fea­ture film star­ring Hugh Grant and Andie MacDow­ell, the ac­tors will play characters named Jess, Kash, Ains­ley and Duffy, re­spec­tively, in the new adap­ta­tion, which is also set in Eng­land.

Ac­cord­ing to Hulu, Jess is a young com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor for a New York sen­a­to­rial cam­paign and heads to Lon­don af­ter be­ing in­vited to a col­lege class­mate’s wed­ding, leav­ing her pro­fes­sional and per­sonal life be­hind in fa­vor of re­con­nect­ing with old friends.

There, she ends up in the mid­dle of their per­sonal crises that re­volve around four wed­dings and a fu­neral.

The pi­lot script was writ­ten by Mindy Kal­ing and Matt War­bur­ton, who are also among the ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers.
