Mindy Kaling

Earlier this week, we reported that Rainn Wilson is getting his own spin-off show, and now his “The Office” costar Mindy Kaling has gotten a comedy pilot order from Fox.

The Hollywood Reporter says that the show would depict Kaling as “a young Bridget Jones-type doctor trying to navigate both her personal and professional lives.”

Kaling will be the show’s writer and executive producer. Should Fox pick up the series, she’d leave “The Office” to focus on this endeavor full-time. Are you interested in seeing Mindy Kaling in another comedic role outside “The Office”?
