Mindy Kaling, who is the best, will write, executive produce, and voice a character for a new "animated comedy project" for NBC, Deadline reports. Parks and Recreation producer Alan Yang will helm a similar project. The Office and Parks and Rec executive producer Greg Daniels (also a King of the Hill co-creator) will executive produce both programs.

“One of our focuses will be to return Greg to primetime animation,” NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt tells Deadline.

Kaling has already decisively shown she can kill it in book form, so a cartoon prospect has us nothing but psyched. Her series is said to be about a team of female high school volleyballers.
