During the Netflix Upfront presentation today in New York City, Mindy Kaling (Never Have I Ever, The Mindy Project) and Kate Hudson (Glass Onion, Almost Famous) announced the title and first look photos for their new comedy series Running Point. Formerly known as Untitled Mindy Kaling Comedy Series, the series will premiere in 2025 with 10 episodes.

The logline reads: “When a scandal forces her brother to resign, Isla Gordon (Kate Hudson) 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.”
