Mere seconds pass before several people are fired in this first trailer for Amazon Studios’ ‘Late Night’, with Emma Thompson as a monstrous boss and talk-show host doing the head-chopping.

Late Night, getting a theatrical release June 7 comes from Mindy Kaling, who writes, produces and stars as the latest in an apparently long line of comedy writers for Thompson’s tyrannical late-night host. Kaling’s character is the sole female and person of color on the show’s staff, diversity hire who quickly becomes the declining show’s savior.

Late Night was one of the buzziest projects to come out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Deadline broke the story when Amazon landed the pic after an all-night bidding battle. The $13 million deal bested Amazon’s $12 million Sundance buy for The Big Sick.
