Mindy Kaling Has A New Netflix Show On The Way

Netflix has given Mindy Kaling's new comedy series a 10 episode order.

Based loosely on Mindy's own experiences growing up as a first generation Indian American, the as-yet-untitled show has been described as a semi-autobiographical, coming-of-age comedy.

Reuniting Mindy with Lang Fisher -- who was the co-executive producer on The Mindy Project  -- Mindy and Lang will share showrunner duties, as well as being co-creators, co-writers and executive producers.

So far, plot deets are scant on the project, and it's unclear whether Mindy will be taking any onscreen role as yet.

It's another chapter in a very busy year for Mindy, with her feature film Late Night, starring Emma Thompson, premiering at Sundance earlier this year, and having just wrapped production on a mini-series adaptation of Four Weddings and a Funeral for Hulu.
