The finest things occur all of a sudden.
Pro tennis Hall of Famer John McEnroe has actually been the storyteller on all 3 seasons of Netflix’s Never Have I Ever, co-created by Mindy Kaling It’s shown to be a winning, yet unforeseen, mix considered that McEnroe is a 63- year-old white man and the series illustrates the high school trials and adversities of Devi Vishwakumar (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) and her varied group of buddies.
“Who would’ve thought that I would be the sort of psychologist or uncle or advisor to an 18- or 17-year-old Indian American girl going through high school,” McEnroe joked to EntertainmentTonight “So I got to credit Mindy Kaling.”
So, how did McEnroe and Kaling link?
” I fulfilled her at this Vanity Fair Oscar celebration and we were simply crossing courses and [my wife] Patty [Smyth] goes, ‘Oh, that’s Mindy Kaling!'” McEnroe shared. “I wasn’t even sure who it was then and [Mindy]’s like, ‘Oh my god, I have this concept of you telling this program,’ and I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, yeah, sure you do. Of course, I’m gon na tell this program.’
But Kaling wasn’t joking and ultimately it was video game, set, match.
