The Mindy Project

The Mindy Project

The series follows gynecologist Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) as she tries to balance her personal and professional life, surrounded by quirky co-workers in a small medical practice in New York City. The character was inspired by Kaling’s own mother. Mindy explores life with the help of her co-workers: Danny Castellano, her best friend and love interest, whose religious sensibilities and mommy/daddy issues occasionally cause some tension; Jeremy Reed, the English doctor who now heads the practice; Peter Prentice, another doctor who was a fraternity jock while attending Dartmouth; Morgan Tookers, a wacky registered nurse and an ex-con; Tamra Webb, a nurse who’s always hinting at a unbelievably cool life outside the office; and Beverley, the libidinous older office receptionist.
