After making waves with Netflix’s Never Have I Ever, Mindy Kaling is heading to HBO Max for her next project, titled The Sex Lives of College Girls. The 10-episode series, created by Kaling and Justin Noble, follows four young women at New England’s prestigious Essex College as they try to navigate love, life, and friendship during their freshman year. On Oct. 13, HBO Max shared the first trailer for the show, and the incredible cast has us super excited about what’s in store.
Just like many of Kaling’s previous projects, the show is loosely based on her life, as well as Noble’s. “If I wrote from my experience, the show would be called ‘The Nonexistent Sex Life of a College Closeted Gay Boy Who’s Only Friends With Girls.’ And that’s just a little more niche,” Noble said during a panel for the show, according to Variety. On creating the show, Kaling added, “One thing that a lot of my shows and projects have in common are young women who have big personalities and big ambitions. On a regular show you may watch, there may be one character like that [but] I wanted to show four young women who come in with a really strong point of view.” Ahead, learn more about the show before it premieres in November.
The Sex Lives of College Girls Plot
