Bio: Mindy Kaling

Emmy-nominated writer, producer, New York Times best-selling author, director and actor Mindy Kaling has been named one of the brightest voices of her generation. At 24, Kaling joined the eight person writing staff at NBC’s The Office. During her eight seasons at the show, she wrote twenty-six episodes (more than any other writer) and was nominated for an Emmy—the first for a woman of color in any writing category. 
 
Next Kaling created the The Mindy Project for Universal Television, a show that she starred in and executive produced from 2012 to 2017. Kaling wrote 24 episodes of the 117 episodes created for the six-season series. 
 
In 2012, Kaling was named to the Time 100 Most Influential People in the World List. She was honored with the 2014 Glamour Women of the Year Award and most recently was a 2019 ELLE Women In Hollywood honoree.  
In 2020, Kaling released the critically acclaimed series, Never Have I Ever for Netflix. Season 1 reached 40 million homes in its first four weeks of release and has been picked up for a third season by Netflix. Recently, it was announced that Kaling will write, produce, and star in an untitled comedy for Universal opposite Priyanka Chopra, co-written with Dan Goor. The duo is also currently penning Legally Blonde 3 which will star Reese Witherspoon.

Kaling’s most recent release is The Sex Lives of College Girls, which in 2021 had the biggest premiere of any comedy on HBOMax. It has been picked-up for a second season. 

In between all her ventures, Kaling has released two New York Times bestselling comedic memoirs⁠: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) and Why Not Me?, and in Oct 2020 she released a new collection of essays in partnership with Amazon called Nothing Like I Imagined.
