2015 Summer of Me Schedule; The Mindy Project Moves to Hulu for Season 4

The Summer of Me

The Summer of Me starts on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25. And this year is even more memorable as MeTV welcomes actress Dawn Wells, Mary Ann of Gilligan's Island, who will be making special appearances all summer long! The Summer of Me sets sail weeknights at 6PM|5C with the castaway comedy of Gilligan's Island, followed at 6:30PM|5:30C by the ragtag crew of Hogan's Heroes. From 9PM to 11PM, the comedy continues with The Summer of CoMEdies! This two-hour block features four episodes of a different show each weeknight. Mondays, Zack and the gang find new adventures as roommates at California University in Saved by the Bell: The College Years. Milwaukee's best comes at you Tuesdays and Wednesdays with Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley, respectively. The Sweathogs are in class Thursdays with Welcome Back, Kotter, and Fridays are more fun with America's favorite family, The Brady Bunch. And one note, every Wednesday night starting at 9PM, The Summer of Me's Laverne & Shirley episodes feature hand-picked favorites curated by series' stars Penny Marshall (Laverne De Fazio), Cindy Williams (Shirley Feeney) and Eddie Mekka (Carmine Ragusa)!

With all the new additions to the Summer of Me schedule, some programs are going on a well-deserved summer vacation. Say goodbye--for now--to The Twilight Zone, CHiPs, The Bob Newhart Show, Taxi, Cheers and The Odd Couple. View the Summer of Me schedule to see the entire line-up!


The Mindy Project

Hulu announced that it has ordered season four - 26 new episodes - of the critically acclaimed series The Mindy Project. The series will join Hulu's Original Programming slate in a new agreement with Universal Television, as Fox will not be airing the series anymore. Hulu subscribers will also be able to stream past and future episodes of The Mindy Project exclusively on Hulu. Since its network premiere in 2012, The Mindy Project has been a top show on Hulu and has consistently remained popular with Hulu subscribers. Hulu is currently the exclusive streaming home to all past episodes of the series, which were previously acquired in a library deal with NBCUniversal announced in April 2014. A premiere date for season four of The Mindy Project will be announced at a later time. Following the premiere, Hulu will have the option to order subsequent seasons.

The Mindy Project is a single-camera comedy series created by and starring Emmy(R)-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling that follows a skilled OB/GYN navigating the tricky waters of both her personal and professional life. The series also stars Chris Messina, Ed Weeks, Ike Barinholtz, Beth Grant and Xosha Roquemore. The comedy series will join Hulu's growing slate of premium original programming including event series 11/22/63 from Stephen King and J.J. Abrams starring James Franco; comedy series Difficult People produced by Amy Poehler with stars Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner; Casual, a comedy series from Oscar(R)-nominated Director Jason Reitman; The Way, a drama series from Universal Television and Jason Katims' True Jack Productions; and the first longform project from Freddie Wong and the RocketJump team.
