Mindy Kaling has gotten the green light from Fox for her new series, which she will write, executive produce and star in.
Called It’s Messy, the new comedy will be a 30-minute, single-camera sitcom that “follows a young Bridget Jones type character trying to navigate both her personal and professional lives,” Fox said in a statement.
Apparently Kaling wants to make sure other alums of The Office are involved. The show will be executive produced by her former co-star, BJ Novak. Ed Weeks, Chris Messina, Anna Camp Zoe Jarmon and Dana DeLorenzo co-star with Kaling in the new show, while Bill Hader, Ed Helms and Richard Schift guest-star in the pilot episode.
If all goes well for Kaling, the actress will leave her Office days behind and focus on It’s Messy, which is said to be her ‘passion project.’
