Actress Mindy Kaling to Headline Content Marketing World 2019
CLEVELAND, May 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Content Marketing Institute (CMI) announces that Mindy Kaling, an accomplished actor, writer, producer, director, and best-selling author will headline Content Marketing World 2019. The largest content marketing event on the planet returns to Cleveland, Ohio September 3-6, 2019.
From her breakout role as celebrity obsessed Kelly Kapoor on “The Office” to her role as romantic-comedy obsessed Dr. Mindy Lahiri on “The Mindy Project”, Kaling is a dynamic performer who is known as one of the funniest and most likable actors today. Not only that, with numerous writing, directing and producing credits, Kaling is the mastermind behind some of the funniest shows on TV. On the big screen, she’s starred in the Oscar-winning Pixar film “Inside Out,” “A Wrinkle in Time,” “The 40-Year Old Virgin,” and “Ocean’s 8.” She can be seen in the upcoming movie she wrote and produced, called “Late Night.” Additionally, her two books, “Why not Me?” and “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)” both made the New York Times bestseller list.
Kaling has been writing and telling jokes since she was young and has honed her craft over the years from off-Broadway to TV, to the big screen. Along the way, she’s broken barriers in Hollywood. Kaling was the first woman of color nominated for an Emmy in writing. She’s not afraid to push boundaries with her fresh take and perspective as an Indian-American woman and advocates for the importance of diversity and inclusiveness in the stories we tell.
At the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, Kaling premiered her debut screenplay titled “Late Night”. With a cast including Emma Thompson, Reid Scott, Ike Barinholtz, Amy Ryan, John Lithgow and Kaling herself, the film received critical acclaim at the opening weekend of the festival and sold to Amazon Studios for a record setting $13 million US rights deal. “Late Night” will open in the US on June 7th, 2019.
In 2012, Kaling was named to the Time 100 Most Influential People in the World List. She was honored with the 2014 Glamour Women of the Year Award. In 2018, Kaling delivered an impactful commencement address at Dartmouth College and received the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters.
“We’re beyond excited that Mindy Kaling will be joining us on stage at Content Marketing World 2019,” shares Stephanie Stahl, general manager, Content Marketing Institute. “She’s got an amazing ability to tell stories that are infused with heart and humor, but more importantly make us take a hard look at important topics in our world today.
