Netflix, Mindy Kaling link for comedy

Netflix has ordered a coming-of-age comedy series from Mindy Kaling, star of US sitcoms The Mindy Project and The Office.

Mindy Kaling

The 10-episode project is about the complicated life of a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl, inspired by Kaling’s own childhood.

Lang Fisher (The Mindy Project, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) will serve as co-creator and showrunner alongside Kaling. Other executive producers on the show include Howard Klein (The Office, The Mindy Project, Parks & Recreation) and David Miner (30 Rock, Master of None).

Earlier this year, Kaling agreed an exclusive multi-year deal with Warner Bros Television Group. However, the Netflix project will be produced with Universal Television.

Kaling is also the writer and exec producer on the series remake of classic UK rom-com Four Weddings & a Funeral, which was commissioned by Hulu.
