Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow) and Ashley Madekwe (Salem) are set to recur on Four Weddings and A Funeral, the Hulu limited series inspired by the British romantic comedy, executive produced by Mindy Kaling and Matt Warburton. Tommy Dewey (Casual) also has been tapped for a guest role.
Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral, from MGM Television and Universal TV, with MGM serving as the lead studio, revolves around four American friends — Maya (Natathalie Emmanuel), Craig (Brandon Mychal Smith), Ainsley (Rebecca Rittenhouse) and Duffy (John Reynolds) — who reunite for a fabulous London wedding. But after a bombshell at the altar throws their lives into turmoil, they must weather a tumultuous year of romance and heartbreak. Relationships are forged and broken, political scandals exposed, London social life lampooned, love affairs ignited and doused, and of course, there are four weddings… and a funeral.
