Netflix at the Upfronts in 2024 confirmed the official title and release window for its upcoming Kate Hudson-led comedy series now called Running Point

First announced to be in development in June 2021, we’ve had several updates since then. Kate Hudson was attached to the project in January 2024, and the entire additional cast was unveiled at the end of February.

The 10-episode series sees Netflix reteaming with Kaling, who works at Warner Bros. Television under an overall deal, with their previous project together being the smash-hit series Never Have I Ever.

“When a scandal forces her brother to resign,” reads the logline, “Isla Gordon is appointed President of the Los Angeles Waves, one of the most storied professional basketball franchises, and her family business. Ambitious and often overlooked, Isla will have to prove to her skeptical brothers, the board, and the larger sports community that she was the right choice for the job, especially in the unpredictable, male-dominated world of sports.”

Filming in Los Angeles, the project got underway in late February 2024 with its scheduled wrap due to take place this week (May 17th). James Ponsoldt has directed the first two episodes.
