By now, we all know that one of Fox’s biggest comedy hauls this pilot season was Mindy Kaling’s sitcom, The Mindy Project. Mostly known for her role and writing/producing work on The Office on NBC, this move to a new network marks a huge step in Kaling’s television business dominance.
Her show revolves around Mindy (naturally), a young doctor trying to balance work and relationships. And judging by the trailer, which features Bill Hader and her Office co-star Ed Helms, it’s pretty much what you’d expect. But with Kaling’s writing skills, I’m confident the show will transcend the Sex And The City-for one this has the potential of being.
At the trailer’s opening, we find Mindy in a New York City taxi. “Dear, Lord. Please make this date be good. May he have the wealth of Mayor Bloomberg, the personality of Jon Stewart, the face of Michael Fassbender (pause)… the penis of Michael Fassbender.” (That’s a reference to the movie Shame, wherein the actor shows off his massive dong– in case you didn’t know). And so our story begins.
So, do you think you’ll be tuning in to The Mindy Project?
