Fox Swoops in to Pick Up Mindy Kaling’s Bridget Jones-ian Sitcom Pilot

By

After NBC passed on it, Fox has picked up Mindy Kaling’s pilot about “a young Bridget Jones-type doctor trying to navigate both her personal and professional lives.” Kaling will write, executive produce, and star. If this pilot goes to series, she would likely leave The Office, which means no more Kelly Kapoor. But it would definitely be worth it to see Kaling play an OB/GYN drinking wine out of the bottle and singing “All By Myself” to her television set in her pajamas. Ah, wouldn’t it be great if Mindy Kaling would just remake Bridget Jones’ Diary on Youtube to pass the time before we get to see her show?
