Mindy Kaling’s Netflix Comedy Series Unveils First Photos Of Kate Hudson As Pro Basketball Team President

We’re getting the first look at Kate Hudson as President of a legendary basketball franchise in Mindy Kaling‘s new comedy series Running Point (fka Untitled Mindy Kaling Comedy Series), set for premiere in 2025. Hudson and Kaling presented the new title and photos Wednesday during the Netflix Upfront presentation in New York City. You can see the photos above and below.

In Running Point, when a scandal forces her brother to resign, Isla Gordon (Hudson) is appointed President of the Los Angeles Waves, one of the most storied professional basketball franchises, and her family business. Ambitious and often overlooked, Isla will have to prove to her skeptical brothers, the board, and the larger sports community that she was the right choice for the job, especially in the unpredictable, male-dominated world of sports.

Cast also includes Brenda Song, Drew Tarver, Scott MacArthur, Fabrizio Guido, Toby Sandeman, Chet Hanks, Max Greenfield, Keyla Monterroso Mejia, Roberto Sanchez, Uche Agada and Dane DiLiegro.

The 10-episode series is produced by Mindy Kaling’s Kaling International in association with Warner Bros. Television, where Kaling is under an overall deal.

Kaling co-writes alongside fellow Mindy Project alums Ike Barinholtz and David Stassen and Stassen serves as showrunner. James Ponsoldt directs the first two episodes. Hudson, Lakers’ President and Governor Jeanie Buss and the team’s Linda Rambis executive produce alongside 3 Arts’ Howard Klein, Kaling, Barinholtz and Stassen. Lakers’ Jordan Rambis is a producer.
