Just in time for holiday season travel and gifting, Audible released award-winning romance author Alyssa Cole’s Audible Original, The A.I. Who Loved Me, starring Regina Hall (The Hate U Give, Girls Trip, Little) and Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project, The Office, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me). Listeners will love hearing Hall and Kaling bring this captivating romantic comedy – about a 36-year-old woman named Trinity Jordan who’s life gets turned upside down when her neighbor’s gorgeous nephew moves in – with a thrilling sci-fi twist to life.
Regina Hall commented: “Performing in the Audible Original ‘The A.I Who Loved Me,’ was a completely new and creatively challenging experience. Each character had their own voice, personality and emotions and I had fun crafting each and every one of them— particularly for the bio-human! I’m so excited for audiences to hear this amazing and truly unique love story.”
Mindy Kaling commented: “I’ve been a sucker for love stories since I was an awkward middle-schooler, so I absolutely loved getting to be the voice of Penny in the new Audible Original The A.I. Who Loves Me. It was so fun to work on and the story is ridiculously juicy and romantic. Plus, I got to talk in a sassy, sexy robot voice so that was pretty cool too.”
Alyssa Cole commented: “I was already super excited about getting to work on this project with Audible, but my soul basically left my body when I was told about the casting. Mindy Kaling! Regina! Freaking!! Hall!!! Reading something I wrote! I still don’t quite believe it, but I feel incredibly lucky.”
The A.I. Who Loved Me is also available to members of Audible Escape. Kaling is the face of Audible Escape’s ‘Love Love’ campaign, which launched earlier this year.
The A.I. Who Loved Me
Trinity Jordan leads a quiet, normal life: working from home for the Hive, a multifunctional government research center, and recovering from the incident that sent her into a tailspin. But the life she’s trying to rebuild is plagued by mishaps when Li Wei, her neighbor’s super sexy and super strange nephew, moves in and turns things upside down.
Li Wei’s behavior is downright odd – and the attraction building between them is even more so. When an emergency pulls his aunt away from the apartment complex, Trinity decides to keep an eye on him…and slowly discovers that nothing is what it seems. For one thing, Li Wei isn’t just the hot guy next door – he’s the hot A.I. next door. In fact, he’s so advanced that he blurs the line between man and machine. It’s up to Trinity to help him achieve his objective of learning to be human, but danger is mounting as they figure out whether he’s capable of the most illogical human behavior of all…falling in love.
