'The Mindy Project'
Fox 'The Mindy Project'

Who hasn't watched Mindy Kaling as Kelly Kapoor on "The Office" (or as the friend who's more interesting than the leads in "The Five-Year Engagement" or "No Strings Attached") and thought "that girl deserves her own show"?

So it was welcome news when Fox picked up Kaling's new sitcom "The Mindy Project" for 2012-2013 -- the series will feature Kaling as an OB-GYN who's trying to get her personal and professional lives in order, with "True Blood" actor Anna Camp as her best friend and indie stalwart Chris Messina as the colleague she's clearly going to snark at until they eventually fall in love.

The trailer for the show, below, like last year's one for "New Girl," looks more like a movie than a series, but if "The Mindy Project" ends up where "New Girl" did by the latter half of its first season, it'll be well worth a watch.
