“The Office's” Mindy Kaling is getting animated.
The funny lady has landed her own cartoon on NBC, Deadline reports.
Good news for fans of Kaling’s new book, “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?”: The 32 year-old comedian will write, executive produce, and voice a character for the series, which is said to be about a high school volleyball team.
But Kaling will have a little help from “The Office” and “Parks & Recreation” executive producer Greg Daniels, who's developing the show with her.
Daniels, who co-created “King of the Hill,” is also working on an animated series with “Parks & Recreation” producer Alan Yang.
In addition to her book, TV comedy series and upcoming cartoon, Kaling has a romantic comedy coming to the big screen in April - “The Five-Year Engagement.”
