Mindy Kaling May Just Have Written Your Favorite New Workplace Comedy

Mindy Kaling has just given us another reason to love her as she has brought a whole new feminine heroine to the small screen (one that isn't afraid to wear stripes with polka dots) and is now a successful doctor, entrepreneur, and single mother.

But Kaling is about to hit the silver screen with her upcoming film which she wrote and will star in alongside Emma Thompson. It is being described as "'The Devil Wears Prada' meets Broadcast News," which means it is going to be awesome.

It is about a late-night TV show veteran (Thompson) who is "in danger of losing her long-running show right when she hires her first female writer." Kaling will play the writer and Scott Rudin will produce.

Plus, don't miss "The Mindy Project" Season 5 premieres on Oct. 5 on Hulu.
