THE MINDY PROJECT is a biting new single-camera comedy from Emmy Award-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling ("The Office") that follows a woman who, despite having a successful career, is unlucky in love and desperately needs to get her personal life back on track before her friends and colleagues are forced to stage an intervention.
Funny, impatient and politically incorrect, MINDY LAHIRI (Kaling) can quote every romantic comedy starring Meg Ryan that exists. She loves the good ones and the bad ones, because the girl always gets the guy. Mindy is determined to be more punctual, spend less money, lose weight and read more books - all in pursuit of becoming a well-rounded perfect woman...who can meet and date the perfect guy.
Hulu has the Pilot episode up as a 'preview' and its cute. I liked most of the characters, and I look forward to the second episode. It definitely works as a companion to The New Girl, IMO. I think there's a few things they can iron out, like the office secretaries who seemed strange. But every pilot has quirks, so I'm happy to see what comes next!
