"We're doing that! We're working our way through It's Always Sunny and Happy Endings one by one," jokes executive producer Matt Warburton. "I think everybody's okay with that. Yes, absolutely." Explains creator Mindy Kaling, "We really love Eliza. She plays this really funny party girl publicist who lives down the hallway from »
Maybe they should call it One Degree of Mindy?
Fox is developing a comedy pilot produced by two former costars of Mindy Kaling: Adam Pally (Happy Endings, The Mindy Project) and Paul Lieberstein (The Office), according to our sister site Deadline.
Niether, Pally (who played the series-regular character of Peter Prentice on Mindy for a season and a half) nor Lieberstein (who played The Office‘s hapless Toby while also serving as executive producer), is attached to appear in the potential project.

Traditionally, when we have a comedian or comic actor do a Comics Talks to Comics interview to promote a project, they are the ones who answer the questions. Adam Pally — whose offbeat, charming indie rom-com Slow Learners comes out in theaters and on VOD today — instead used it as an opportunity to ask Adam Scott questions that were essentially insults. They discuss what would have to happen for Adam Scott to look like Rachel Maddow, doing television versus having the ninth-biggest part in a Matt Damon movie, and movie ideas in which they are both widowed. Enjoy!Adam Scott: You know when you’re about to leave your kid, and all of a sudden you get paranoid that something terrible is going to happen, and you just hang out for a few extra minutes? I was dropping my daughter off at this camp in the middle of Griffith Park, and »

An ambitious young man finds himself tending to his boss's girlfriend -- his married boss's secret girlfriend -- who's in despair. It sounds like the middle of The Apartment, but it's actually the focus of Night Owls, a feature that premiered at SXSW and just screened at the Hill Country Film Festival, where it won the Cinema Dulce Best of Fest award. The indie owes a large debt to the 1960 Billy Wilder film without feeling like a remake or tribute.
The movie opens with Madeline (Rosa Salazar) taking Kevin (Adam Pally) home for a boozy one-night stand ... or so Kevin thinks. It's only after their brief liaison that Kevin, about to slip out of the house, realizes in stages that a) it's not her house, it belongs to his boss; b) Madeline's been involved with his boss in some way; and c) she's out cold in the bathroom after overdosing on something unknown. »
