About THE MINDY PROJECT: The Mindy Project is a comedy created by and starring Emmy Award-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling. Entering its third season, the series follows a skilled OB/GYN with a chaotic personal life.
This past season, Dr. MINDY LAHIRI (Kaling) fell for her colleague and office sparring partner, Dr. DANNY CASTELLANO (Chris Messina). Their relationship skyrocketed to new heights when the two shared a kiss in an airplane, but when their feet hit the ground, the two struggled to make their relationship work. Danny broke things off, but then acted like a jealous boyfriend when Mindy dated other men. In the end, Mindy believes she got her fairytale ending when the two reunited atop the Empire State Building. But did she? Season Three will continue to explore her and Danny's romantic and professional relationship.
Along with Danny, Mindy shares a practice with two other doctors: Dr. JEREMY REED (Ed Weeks), the office's managing partner and resident punching bag; and DR. PETER PRENTICE (Adam Palley), a high-fiving former frat boy who knows nothing about the opposite sex, but insists on doling out relationship advice to Mindy.
Rounding out the medical staff are male nurse MORGAN TOOKERS (Ike Barinholtz), a reformed ex-con with a heart of gold who, despite his best intentions, always seems to land himself in trouble; TAMRA (Xosha Roquemore), a girl who would rather dish gossip and offer beauty tips than do anything resembling work; and the grumpy and absent-minded nurse BEVERLY (Beth Grant).
THE MINDY PROJECT is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment in association with Universal Television. The series is created and written by Mindy Kaling. Kaling, Howard Klein, Matt Warburton and Michael Spiller are executive producers.
