Mindy Kaling's 'Champions' Cancelled By NBC & Looking For New Home

Mindy Kaling‘s series Champions has been cancelled by NBC after one season.

The show, which starred Anders Holm, JJ Totah and Andy Favreau, is reportedly being shopped to other networks and streaming services.

Champions revolved around brothers who owned a gym and how their lives were put on hold when one discovers they have a teenage son who is dropped off on their doorstep.
