Falling for Mindy

22 Oct

Fall means the faint smell of fires burning, boot shopping, frothy pumpkin flavored coffee drinks, and a new season of TV programming. While I welcome breaking out the sweaters and boot shopping, the thing that I am most excited is the fall TV line-up. The one that I most anticipated was The Mindy Project.

This summer I read the deliciously funny autobiography, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? And Other Concerns. The book is by playwright, comic writer, television actress, and author, Mindy Kalling. In this insightful anecdotal memoir, Mindy Kalling offers a glimpse into her childhood, college years, love life, and career. With Chapters like “The Day I Stopped Eating Cupcakes” and “Chubby for Life” I knew I could identify with this other thirty-something. I read it twice in row and couldn’t get enough.

So when I heard about her new show, The Mindy Project, I could not be more thrilled. Kalling is the creator, an executive producer, a writer, and the star of the series that premieres just one year after the release of her book.

Actress, Mindy Kalling shines as single, sharp-witted doctor with a flair for dramatics in the Tuesday night FOX comedy, The Mindy Project that airs 8:30pm CST /9:30pm ET.  After the first episode, I was hooked. Fresh and funny!

Episodes guest star some familiar faces like Seth Meyers and Bill Hader from Saturday Night Live and former office co-star Ed Helms. The 30 minute comedy also has Texas ties. Dallas born character actor, Stephen Tobolowsky plays opposite of Kalling as one of the three partners in her medical practice.

The Mindy Project was greenlit and according to multiple sources, FOX will air an additional nine episodes, keeping my Tuesday nights content and on the couch.
