Mindy Kaling to star in ‘Good in Bed’ adaptation at HBO Max

Mindy Kaling is heading to HBO Max for her next project!

According to Variety, actress Mindy Kaling has officially signed on to star in the streamer’s forthcoming adaptation of the best selling novel, Good in Bed.

Based on author Jennifer Weiner’s book of the same name, Good in Bed follows Cannie Shapiro— a journalist living in Philadelphia and trying to juggle her up-and-coming career with her personal life, which includes self esteem issues, a poor relationship with her father, and an overbearing mother.

In addition to starring in the forthcoming book to film adaptation, Kaling will also be serving as a producer on the project via her Kaling International production company.
