Mindy Kaling on The Mindy Project, Premiering in September

Kaling plays a single OB/GYN who’s trying to find work/life balance. “I think my character really wants to picture herself as the protagonist in a romantic comedy,” she says. “I’m someone who loves romance. I always have loved it. Most people who grew up as nerds — as I was, surprisingly — have loved romance.” [UsMagazine.com]
