Spoiler alert: The Mindy Project, while set in the Big Apple, doesn’t actually shoot in the Big Apple — a fact made crystal clear in the following video exclusively obtained by TVLine.
The super-silly stop-motion clip, pieced together using thousands of images, finds Mindy Kaling and her merry band of misfits cavorting on the Universal Studios backlot (aka Mindy Project‘s set) during the Fox comedy’s official Season 2 photo shoot.
Press PLAY below and watch Mindy Project assemble a faux NYC before your very eyes, and then scroll down further for a first look at the show’s official Season 2 Key Art. (Oh, and while we’re busy shattering illusions, the ketchup on Kaling’s arm? It’s probably just red goo!)
