Mindy Kaling Lands Development Deal

May 6, 2009 by  

Congrats to THE OFFICE’s Mindy Kaling who landed a deal with NBC to develop her own comedy.  OFFICE fans don’t freak — Mindy is still with the show both behind the camera as a writer/producer and in front of the camera as the ferosh and fabulous Kelly Kapoor.

“This is my first step in a Transformers-style way to take over the whole world,” Kaling quipped. “I’ve only ever worked for NBC, and I’ve felt an enormous amount of support from the executives there.”

As for what kind of show Kaling will create, that’s a little TBD right now. Accrding to Variety, Kaling said she’s drawn to workplace comedies but is also interested in buddy shows in the vein of “Flight of the Conchords.”

“I’ve always wanted to do another show about women,” said Kaling.

I’ll watch whatever you put out there, Mindy.

Now how do we get her to make a TV show out of her shopping blog. Hmm.
