Mindy Kaling to Exit The Office for New Sitcom?

at . Comments

It seems very likely that Mindy Kaling will exit The Office after this season - but, no, she will not be taking a job at Schrute Farms.

Instead, the actress has landed a pilot deal with Fox for a sitcom she will co-produce along with Howard Klein, an executive producer on The Office. If it gets picked up - and, really, why would a pilot featuring this hilarious young star not get picked up?!? - Kaling will depart Dundler Mifflin.

On the show, Kaling will portray an OB/GYN looking for the answers to various life questions. Think Bridget Jones with a stethoscope.
