has already developed an animated series for NBC, and she now has received the green light for a medical comedy. Only, it isn’t on the network that made her famous; instead Fox has picked up the series which Kaling will co-produce and co-star in as an OB/GYN.
The show will follow Kaling’s character as she interacts with quirky characters in her office, and balances the struggles of her work life and her personal life. If the series is picked up by Fox, she would not be able to return to The Office next season due to the time commitment in the starring role.
Kaling, along with the majority of The Office actors are currently not committed to another season of the series as this is the final year of their contract.
