Indian-American writer and producer Amina Munir has signed a deal with Universal Television, Variety has reported. She is currently working on two series with the television production company – as a supervising producer for Netflix’s ‘Never Have I Ever’ and a producer on NBC’s ‘Mr Mayor’.
With the new deal, Munir will develop and produce projects for a variety of platforms. “It’s been a dream come true to work with Universal and feels surreal to be a part of their incredible comedy roster,” she told Variety. “The past four years of working on their shows has been life-changing, to say the least.”
As a writer on ‘Never Have I Ever’, Munir was able to blend comedy with culture. The series created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher centers on the complicated life of Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), a modern-day first-generation Indian-American teenage girl.
Season 3, which just wrapped production, will launch this summer, and production on Season 4, which will launch in 2023, is expected to kick off in the coming months.
