A new comedy from Mindy Kaling, the former writer, producer and actress on NBC’s “The Office” who went on to create, executive produce and star on “The Mindy Project,” landed a 10-episode series order at Netflix.
Deadline reports that the untitled project is a semi-autobiographical comedy-of-age comedy. The show comes from Kaling and “The Mindy Project” co-executive producer Lang Fisher, and will be produced by Universal Television.
“Co-created, co-written and executive produced by Kaling and Fisher, who also serve as showrunners, the as-yet untitled comedy is about the complicated life of a modern-day first generation Indian American teenage girl, inspired by Kaling’s own childhood,” Deadline reports. “Kaling and Fisher executive produce with 3 Arts’ Howard Klein and David Miner.”
