Currently enjoying huge critical success stateside, The Mindy Project comes from the pen of Emmy Award-nominated writer/ producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling. Despite having a successful career as a skilled obstetrician/ gynaecologist, Mindy Lahiri (Kaling) is unlucky in love and desperately needs to get her personal life back on track before her friends and colleagues are forced to stage an intervention. Funny, impatient and politically incorrect, Mindy can quote every single romantic comedy starring Meg Ryan. She loves even the bad ones, because the girl always gets the guy. Mindy is determined to be more punctual, spend less money, lose weight and read more books - all in pursuit of becoming a well-rounded perfect woman who can meet and date the perfect guy. As Mindy attempts to meet a guy who passes her red flag test (no drug habits, no skinny jeans and no secret families, among other conditions), only time will tell if she gets her rom-com ending. In this first episode, Mindy makes a drunken toast at her ex-boyfriend's wedding, and resolves to turn her life around.
