Mindy Kaling to Executive Produce The Office

by at . Comments

Mindy Kaling just got promoted on The Office. Not into Michael Scott's managerial shoes, sadly.

The writer, producer and co-star of the show (you know her as Kelly Kapoor) signed a one-year deal that will continue her role on screen, while increasing her influence to that of executive producer behind the cameras.

Kaling has written or co-written some of the show’s most memorable episodes in recent years, most notably Jim and Pam’s episode “Niagara”, so it's certainly a well-deserved promotion for the comedienne.

The Office returns to NBC for its transitional eighth season next week on NBC. Check back with TV Fanatic for reviews and the best Office quotes from every episode throughout the season!
