At 24 years-old, Mindy Kaling joined hit comedy TV show 'The Office' as an actress and writer.

Since then, she's created, written and starred in her own hit television projects, as well as written two books.

Now Kaling is fast becoming one of Hollywood's most bankable talents and has been a poster girl for diversity and representation in the film and television industry.

Director Nisha Garatra was hired onto the project by Kaling and said, speaking on the red carpet, that Kaling was "bold" in her approach to getting the film made.

"Late Night" is a comedy about late night talk show host Katherine (Emma Thompson), whose show is ailing and about to be axed.

After taking on a diversity hire in Molly (Mindy Kaling), the pair strike up a friendship which gets both of their careers on track.

Kaling's next project is a Netflix remake of the classic British comedy, 'Four Weddings and a Funeral', but this time, it's a twelve part television series for Hulu and stars a diverse group of actors.
