Mindy Kaling Comedy Picked Up By Fox!

Fox has given the green light to three new comedies for next fall, including one fronted by Mindy Kaling.

The 32 year-old actress will write, executive produce, and star in the comedy which will be executive produced by Howard Klein.

The yet-to-be-named series centers around an ob/gyn Bridget Jones-type doctor who is trying to navigate her personal and professional lives.

According to Variety, if Mindy‘s pilot earns a permanent spot in the line-up The Office star whose Universal Television deal expires in June, would depart the NBC series and focus instead on her new effort.

She’s so beautiful, intelligent, and funny. Btw, has anyone read her autobiography? It’s super funny, yet insightful.

She is obviously a smart woman… and to play that dingy girl in THE OFFICE must be a huge stretch for her. She is is hilarious.
