Never Have I Ever star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan is sticking with Netflix for her next project.
Fans of Maitreyi Ramakrishnan can soon look forward to catching the Never Have I Ever breakout in an all new romantic comedy coming down the pipeline at Netflix.
On Wednesday (June 2), Netflix took to Twitter to announce that Ramakrishnan has officially joined the cast of The Netherfield Girls.
The upcoming Netflix Original is described as a contemporary adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. In a tweet announcing the news, the online streaming giant likened The Netherfield Girls to titles such as Easy A and 10 Things I Hate About You, both of which have taken cues from classic literature and put a modern twist of the tales that inspired them.
