It may indeed be a "project," still finding its way after a half-dozen episodes, but this fast-paced and ingratiating romp has been dubbed by some critics "the best new comedy of the season." Created by and starring Mindy Kaling ("The Office"), it's set in a medical practice where physician Mindy spars with her co-workers (including the wryly reliable Chris Messina, left, as Dr. Danny Castellano) as she struggles to keep the listing ship of her love life afloat. Assessment: "It's actually more revolutionary than 'Girls,'" says McNamara. "Because here's this brown-skinned, oversize woman playing it like she's a sex goddess. She's an interesting mix of arrogance and insecurity, and she's pulling it off on network television, as opposed to HBO, which gives you all this freedom."
