Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell stole our hearts in British rom-com Four Weddings and a Funeral back in 1994 – and now the 90s classic is set for a 21st century comeback, this time as a TV miniseries.
The original Richard Curtis movie features Hugh Grant as a posh, awkward Brit (of course) who falls in love with an American called Carrie (Andie MacDowell). But in this ten-part Hulu series, writers Mindy Kaling and Matt Warburton have created a new generation of star-crossed lovers to take on the Four Weddings and a Funeral name and explore fresh storylines.
