The Mindy Project is a comedy from Emmy Award®-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling that follows a woman who, despite having a successful career, desperately needs to break bad habits in her personal life. Funny, impatient and politically incorrect, Mindy Lahiri can quote every romantic comedy starring Meg Ryan. Mindy is determined to be more punctual, spend less money, lose weight and read more books – all in pursuit of becoming a well-rounded perfect woman… who can meet and date the perfect guy. Mindy is a skilled OB/GYN and shares a practice with a few other doctors, none of whom make life any easier for her. Jeremy Reed is the walking definition of “bad news.” He not only shares a practice with Mindy, but sometimes her bed as well – despite her best efforts to resist. He is funny, self-absorbed and super sexy. In contrast, Danny Castellano is a hothead and guys’ guy who has a habit of stealing Mindy’s patients. Danny criticizes her for everything, including her struggling love life and her lack of professionalism – even though it’s obvious to everyone except Mindy that he secretly admires her work. Rounding out the office staff are the receptionists – Betsy Putch young, earnest and easily excitable, who thinks the world of Mindy and is always trying to impress her; and Shauna Dicanio, a self-assured Jersey Girl who is indifferent to Mindy, always knows where the cool party is and carries a poorly concealed torch for Danny. Mindy is in constant communication with her beloved best friend from college, Gwen Grandy, who also happens to be the governor’s daughter. As Mindy attempts to get her career off the ground and meet a guy who passes her red flag test (no drug habits, no skinny jeans and no secret families, among others), only time will tell if she gets her romantic comedy ending.
