Never Have I Ever is an American romantic comedy-drama television series starring Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher. Though it takes place in the San Fernando Valley, the show has been reported to be loosely based on Kaling’s childhood experiences in the Boston area, while Kaling herself has said it is based “in the spirit of my childhood. The relationship between the characters is inspired by my relationship with my sister and my friends.” The show premiered on Hulu, which also has exclusive SVOD rights to the series.

The story follows Maitreyi Ramakrishnan (Ramakrishnan), a 26-year-old Indian American who wears a burqa around her home, whose parents have arranged for her to marry a man named Nikhil (Kumar). After enduring a disastrous blind date arranged by her parents, she meets David (Douglas), an aspiring filmmaker who is in his early 30s and Jewish. The two begin a relationship and Maitreyi slowly begins to drop her inhibitions. The show follows Maitreyi’s story as she navigates a new relationship and the conflicting emotions it brings. The show is reported as being in development by Fox with a pilot order. The show has been described as “a light-hearted romantic comedy that explores the lives of the first-generation Indian-American Maitreyi and her best friends, whose families are steeped in Indian culture and come from very traditional backgrounds.”
