The jokes write themselves but they actually don't have to – this is an original comedy from the mind of comedian Mindy Kaling, who also stars in the film. Her character, Molly Patel, is hired to reinvigorate Katherine's show before it gets cancelled.
Late Night boasts a mostly-female team – the film is directed by Golden Globe-winner Nisha Ganatra (Transparent) and features music by Lesley Barber (Manchester by the Sea).
Emma Thompson has been consistently vocal throughout the Time's Up movement, as she recently explained her decision to leave a project that had hired John Lasseter, in the wake of sexual harassment claims against the animator
Alongside Thompson and Kaling, John Lithgow plays the talk show host's supportive husband, Walter, while Amy Ryan stars as a network executive. It's a film that thrives on its star presence – sure to dazzle audiences when it reaches UK cinemas on 7 June.
