While Rainn Wilson's potential "Office" spin-off would stay at NBC, Fox appears to be snapping up the talents of his "Office" co-star Mindy Kaling.
The network has reportedly picked up an untitled comedy pilot from Kaling that would star the writer/actress as a Bridget Jones-esque OB/GYN.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Kaling would also write and executive produce the comedy along with "The Office's" Howard Klein as an exec producer.
If this show were to turn into a series, THR alludes that Kaling would exit "The Office" to focus on this effort with Fox.
