Mindy Kaling went from being an in-demand writer to one of the most unique comedic voices of her generation. A native of Cambridge, Massachusetts, she began performing comedy while in college at Dartmouth. During her time at Hanover, she secured an internship on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" (NBC, 1993-2009). After college, she began performing stand-up and tried her hand at writing. She was hired as part of the original writing staff for "The Office" (NBC, 2005-13) and, as with many of the show's writers, was given a recurring character to play. Her on-screen part, Kelly Kapoor, would end up appearing in 161 of the show's 188 episodes. On the big screen she had small parts in the comedies "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" (2005), "License to Wed" (2007), and "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" (2009). After leaving "The Office," she created and starred in the sitcom "The Mindy Project" (Fox/Hulu, 2012-17). Playing lovelorn Dr. Mindy Lahiri, she struck a strong connection with female audiences. She also garnered additional recognition as a writer with her humorous memoir Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?. Firmly established as an actress, she joined Oprah Winfrey in "A Wrinkle in Time" (2018) and Sandra Bullock for "Oceans 8" (2018). As a producer, she created the short-lived sitcom "Champions" (NBC, 2018) and the TV adaptation of the British rom-com classic "Four Weddings and a Funeral" (Hulu, 2019- ). Drawing in part on her own television experiences, Kaling wrote and starred in "Late Night" (Netflix, 2019) with Emma Thompson. The actress played a comedy writer on a late-night talk show where most of the writing staff are white males. She joined former "The Office" costar Steve Carell when she made a guest appearance on the Jennifer Aniston-Reese Witherspoon drama "The Morning Show" (Apple TV, 2019- ). Kaling then established deals to create and produce shows for the streaming services HBO Go and Netflix.
