Mindy Kaling Comdy Pilot NBC

Mindy Kaling to Co-Star in, Produce Comedy Pilot for NBC

Mindy Kaling‘s got another project on her hands.

NBC has ordered a single-camera comedy from the Mindy Project star/creator and Charlie Grandy (The Mindy ProjectSaturday Night Live), TVLine has learned.

The as-yet-untitled potential series follows Vince, “a charismatic gym owner with no ambition who lives with his younger brother Michael, a gorgeous idiot,” per the official synopsis. But the dude-bros’ are thrown for a massive loop when Vince’s teenage son arrives on his doorstep, courtesy of Vince’s high school fling Priya.

Kaling will play Priya and, if the comedy is ordered to series, will recur. She’ll also produce alongside Grandy, Howard Klein and Universal Television/3 Arts Entertainment.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    This story has been done sooooo much. Can we get a moratorium on this plot line as well as the “adult moves back in with their parents” plot for at least 5 years?

      Dude, did you read the whole thing? He lives with his brother, not his parents. Just so we’re clear.

      I think this sound like a funny version of Life Unexpected, and I’m down for that. Plus I love Mindy.

    Good new TV project that Mindy will co-star in and produce.

    Isn’t this Two and a Half Men?

  5. Ken says:

    So does that mean the Mindy Project on Hulu is finished? If not, how would she do two series at the same time?

  6. Jake says:

    Massively unfunny and untalented, she’s one of those people you wonder how she keeps getting acting gigs.

    • Billy Bob Johnson says:

      Exactly. I was so happy when The Mindy Project moved to Hulu and I would no longer be bombarded with network commercials for the show. Drek.

  7. Erin B says:

    I love Mindy. Excited for this!

  8. Billy Bob Johnson says:

    Aren’t there any other names for Indian women? Big Bang had a Priya, The Shannara Chronicles has a Priya, and now she’s going to be a Priya.

    Does this mean that The Mindy Project is dead at Hulu?
