NETFLIX’S new coming-of-age comedy about the life of a modern day teen has released its first look teaser trailer.
The series, created by comedian Mindy Kaling, is based around the experiences of a first-generation Indian-American teenager.
The series is set for release on Netflix on April 27 and looks to be the first of its kind with a South Asian lead.
It stars newcomer Maitreyi Ramakrishnan as Devi, the overachieving high school sophomore whose short fuse gets her into difficult situations.
The teaser shows Devi praying in her room to her in-home shrine.
She says: “Dear God, it’s Devi Vishal-Kumar… I think we can all agree last year sucked for a number of reasons.’’
She continues: ‘’So I thought of a few ways you guys could make it up to me. One: I’d like to be invited to a party with alcohol and hard drugs, I’m not gonna do them. I’d just like the opportunity to say ‘no cocaine for me thanks, I’m good’’’.
“Two: I’d love for my forearm hairs to thin out. I know it’s an Indian thing but my forearms look like the friggin’ floor of a barber shop’.
“And lastly, most importantly, I’d really, really like a boyfriend, but not some nerd from one of my AP classes. Like a guy from a sports team, he can be really dumb, I don’t care.
“I just want him to be a stone-cold hottie who could rock me all night long. Thanks for considering, I love you guys.’’
