Premieres September 25 on FOX
The Office’s loss is Fox’s gain. Mindy Kaling writes and stars as a single ob-gyn still getting used to the fact that life doesn’t work like the romantic comedies she grew up watching obsessively. Kaling’s project is more Bridesmaids than Sleepless in Seattle—tart, a little raunchy and not afraid to give her character a rude, at times tough-to-like side. While the first episode is hit and miss, Kaling’s voice is reason enough to check in on this fractured rom-com.
