Fox Tuesdays at 9pm/8c
Starring: Mindy Kaling, Chris Messina, Ike Barinholtz, Ed Weeks
Part of Fox’s girl-power comedic line-up, The Mindy Project shares air space with fellow funny girl series New Girl starring Zooey Deschanel. Headlined by Mindy Kaling of The Office fame, The Mindy Project follows gynecologist Dr. Mindy Lahiri as she searches for true love in a city famous for one-night stands. Hilarity ensues when Mindy tries to mirror the rom com great Meg Ryan in You’ve Got Mail.
This may be the first time in the history of television when there has been a TV show created by, starring, produced and written by an Indian-American woman. And what better choice than Mindy Kaling, who is like the Indian Lena Dunham.
It’s so awesome to watch a show where the not so typical girl next door gets to date and frolic with the super hot Tom Cruise circa-’83, fellow gyno, Dr. Castellano. (Mmm-hmm Chris Messina, I see you boo. Dr. McDreamy who?) Mindy proves that girls with wit and personality could totally laugh her way into the hearts of any cute Danny Zuko-wannabe.
