Late Night Overview

Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson), a late-night talk show host for the past 28 years, has an all-male writing staff because she has problems working with other females. However, after meeting Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling, who also wrote the screenplay), an Indian-American chemical plant worker with a talent for comedy, Katherine hires her.

When the head of the network (Amy Ryan) tells Katherine this season will be her last and that she'll be replaced by a stand up male comedian (Ike Barinholtz), Katherine decides she's not giving up without a fight. Molly, who worships Katherine, works to give her idol a fresh, new vibe, writing modern monologues for her that portray Katherine as more authentic and personal.
