Mindy Kaling has certainly come a long way in the years since she first popped up in The 40-Year-Old-Virgin as the former lover of Paul Rudd’s character (Yeah, rewatch that s**t, she was in it). In the time since then, she has cycled through a couple of shows, including the breakout series The Office, and the fun, but somewhat inconsistent The Mindy Project, which started out at Fox and ended on Hulu.
Now, she’s getting a new series from Netflix, as THR reports. According to the outlet, the Hollywood talent’s new semi-autobiographical half-hour comedy (which is currently unnamed) has just received a 10-episode order from the streaming giant. The show, which is currently untitled, is based on her own personal experiences, as described by the outlet. Here’s what they had to say about it exactly:
“The untitled comedy, which has received an order for 10 episodes, explores the complicated life of a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl.”
Kaling herself will obviously be creator, in addition to writer, executive producer, and showrunner. That latter duty she’ll be sharing with Lang Fisher, with whom she also worked with on The Mindy Project. It is unknown if Kaling will appear in the show in an actual role, but it wouldn’t surprise me personally if she did.
