When Katherine Newberry – late night TV legend – is told this is her last season, because she’s ‘too old and too white,’ she goes all affirmative action and, lo and behold, Molly shows up in her previously all-male writers room.
But is Molly a case of too little, too late? Molly certainly doesn’t think so.
Amazon Studios’ Late Night will be in theaters on June 7th.
Late Night – Official Trailer | Amazon Studios
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 (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. LATE NIGHT is in theaters June 7th.
Coming to Theaters June 7th, 2019!
