Fittingly paired with New Girl on Tuesday nights on Fox's primetime 2012-2013 schedule is Mindy Kaling's comedy The Mindy Project. Following a bit of girlish banter with New Girl star Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling helped introduce the trailer for her new comedy series at the Fox Upfronts today. Check it out ahead!
Created by and starring Kaling, The Mindy Project has Kaling playing the title role, a doctor who's looking to get her life in order both professionally and personally. Below the cast photo, you'll find Fox's official synopsis for the series, which premieres this fall, and further down, the trailer that introduces us to Kaling's character Mindy.
In addition to giving us an introduction to Mindy, you may also catch guest stars Ed Helms and Bill Hader, both of whom appear to play people involved in Kaling's romantic life (one in the past tense, the other in the present-tense).
Much like New Girl, it looks like The Mindy Project focuses on a young woman who's humorously imperfect but looking to improve her life. As disappointing as it is to picture The Office without Kelly around offering pop-culture references and obsessing about her appearance or her love life, I'll be interested to see how Kaling does as the star of her own series. Hopefully The Mindy Project will see as much success as its potential big-sister-series New Girl.
