Emma Thompson plays Katherine Newbury, who is a legendary late-night talk show host, whose world is turned upside down when she hires her only female staff writer played by Kaling.

FilmNation Entertainment and 30WEST co-financed, with FilmNation handling international sales. Late Night is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment, FilmNation Entertainment and Imperative Entertainment.
