Mindy Kaling Is Doing a "Full Julie & Julia" With Chrissy Teigen's Cravings Cookbook

25 July 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Chrissy Teigen's cookbook is the real deal, guys—just ask Mindy Kaling! The Mindy Project star is a super-fan of Cravings, and to prove it, she's going to cook every single recipe in it. Mindy encouraged fans to join her via Instagram, writing, "Get this book and do a full Julie & Julia with it like I'm doing!" A full Julie & Julia refers to the 2002 movie about a woman named Julie (played by Amy Adams) who sets out to cook all the recipes in a cookbook from Julia Child (played by Meryl Streep). It's an adventurous undertaking, to say the least, and Julie learns a lot about herself through the process. When Mindy wants to go "full Julie & Julia" with »

Review: ‘The Mindy Project’ Season 4 Fulfills Every Binge Viewer’s Dream

5 July 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Mindy Project” Season 4 is over. No, really. It just ended; not last December, when it took a midseason break; not in May, when broadcast sitcoms all wrapped up. The finale, “Homewrecker,” debuted Tuesday, July 5 on Hulu, and… it’s pretty good! We’ll dig into the epic fantasy creator Mindy Kaling has materialized for her character shortly, but that’s not actually why her Fox-turned-Hulu series is an accomplishment like no other in 2016.

In an era when we’re lucky to get 13 episodes of an original series from any network, streaming or otherwise, “The Mindy Project” delivered more content than even the immensely high standards of broadcast television. Twenty-six half-hours of TV is an incredible number to knock out in less than a year (“New Girl,” “Mindy’s” old partner on Fox, made 22), and it’s set the series up to be the ultimate binge for any TV fan. »

The Mindy Project Has a Man Problem

5 July 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Warning: The following contains spoilers from the season finale of The Mindy Project. If you haven't watched yet, you may want to look away now. Don't say we didn't warn you! A funny thing happened during The Mindy Project season four. Well, maybe "funny" isn't the right word, all things considered. In its first full season at its new home, Hulu, the series seemed to lose its grasp on how to write a romantic male lead that doesn't come off as a complete and total lech. Whether it was the complete undoing of everything we'd come to understand of the personality of our beloved Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) or the addition of the off-putting Jody (Garret Dillahunt), Mindy Kaling and »

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in July 2016 (And the Best Episodes of Each)

1 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

1. “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 (available July 22)

Why Should I Watch It? “BoJack Horseman” is a literal and figurative treasure trove of joy, insight and harsh truths. On the literal side, so many small moments pop up throughout the 30-minute episodes it takes repeat viewings to appreciate them all — from the .gif-worthy transitionary bits to the heavy-hitting quips. Yet figuratively, “BoJack” offers up a distinct, strong viewpoint that isn’t afraid to take questions to an existential level, which creates deeper subjective realizations each time you watch (and re-watch, and re-watch, and re-watch…). This is as “must-see” as TV gets — every time.

Best Episode: We wouldn’t dare spoil the new season — not even by telling you what episode to look forward to — and we’ve already covered Season 2. (After much deliberation, we chose “Escape From L.A.” as the best episode.) So let’s just set this time aside to honor the »

‘Ocean’s Eight’: Helena Bonham Carter Says Script Is Hilarious, ‘Great For Women’

29 June 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For the past few months casting rumors have been circulating about the all-female “Ocean’s Eleven” spin-off, “Ocean’s Eight.” Now, Helena Bonham Carter, rumored to be a part of the Gary Ross-directed film, is speaking out.

“It’s a really good script — but I still don’t know if I’m going to be in it,” the actress told Entertainment Weekly. “But it’s a great script, and it’s great for women. Just hilarious.”

The screenplay is penned by Olivia Milch and according to reports, it’s a continuation of the George Clooney-led franchise, with Sandra Bullock playing Danny Ocean’s ex-con sister. Cate Blanchett, who will be the equivalent of Brad Pitt’s Rusty, is supposedly her right-hand woman. The storyline is that they will form a team to steal a necklace from the Met Ball in order to frame a villainous gallery owner. Elizabeth Banks »

Mindy Kaling Is a National Treasure on Instagram (and in Life), and Here's Why

29 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

In case you weren't already aware, Mindy Kaling is one of Hollywood's most gorgeous and hilarious women. In addition to her show, The Mindy Project, we also can't get enough of her impeccable style, her relatable quotes, her hilarious book, and her inspiring advice on how to have confidence. Mindy frequently takes to Instagram to give her fans an inside peek at her successful show, her all-too-real late-night snacks, and her adorable relationship with her former The Office costar and on-again, off-again boyfriend, B. J. Novak. While many celebrities claim to be down-to-earth and just like us, we all know that Mindy actually is, which is why we love her so much. »

Mindy Kaling Predicted Female-Centric ‘Ghostbusters’ Controversy 5 Years Ago

29 June 2016 6:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Another day, another “Ghostbusters” female-reboot controversy story, though this one humorously puts into perspective just how sad and ridiculous the entire backlash over the film has been. The team over at HitFix has discovered that none other than Mindy Kaling predicted the controversy that would erupt over a female-fronted reboot nearly five years ago when she included the idea in her 2011 memoir “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns).”

In a chapter entitled “Franchises I Would Like To Reboot,” Kaling makes the pitch:

“I always wanted the reboot of ‘Ghostbusters’ to be four girl-ghostbusters. Like, four normal, plucky women living in New York City searching for Mr. Right and trying to find jobs — but who also bust ghosts. I’m not an idiot, though. I know the demographic for Ghostbusters is teenage boys, and I »

Celebrities Who Love a Good Bargain: Stars' Tips and Tricks for Getting the Most Bang for Their Buck

29 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Celebrities have the luxury of receiving eye-popping paydays, but even with their millions of dollars, stars can't resist a good bargain like the average Joe. From budget buys at their local pharmacy to clipping coupons, stars such as Jennifer Aniston, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Jessica Parker and more are always looking for ways to save a buck at the register, just like us. Whether it's makeup removal with Vaseline or shampooing with a bottle of coconut oil, A-listers know a good buy when they see it. Sure, they have glam squads and stylists that transform them for red carpets, but they're the first to admit all of it has to be returned, so when it comes time to actually swiping that credit card, these are the »

How Weird Did Emmys Fyc Campaigns Get in 2016? The Answer Is Really Weird

28 June 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There are 19,000 members of the Television Academy who vote on the Primetime Emmy Awards. Here are just a few of Los Angeles locations where, over the last few months, they might have found their votes courted by networks and studios:

The Silver Lake Dog Park A fashion show at the Grove A popular 3rd Street lunch spot A pop-up screening room hosted in an Airstream trailer Election Day polling places A cemetery

In fact, since the beginning of Emmy campaign season (an ill-defined period of time) it’s been a circus of events and stunts meant to get voters’ attention. (In fact, there was a literal carnival, courtesy of Fox, for “Grease: Live.”) Looking at the calendar of an Academy member, there was hardly a single night in May and June that didn’t include at least one “For Your Consideration” event, and sometimes multiple ones clashed for attention.

Mindy Kaling predicted the female-led ‘Ghostbusters’ 5 years ago — and the ensuing uproar

28 June 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The female cast-led Ghostbusters reboot has been making headlines and stirring debate since August 2014. But well before then, when Bill Murray was still expected to star in a Ghostbusters 3, Mindy Kaling fantasy-cast an estrogen-powered Ghostbusters. Icymi: The Office actress wrote a paragraph about a reimagined squad of the paranormal experts in her first book, 2011 memoir Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) in a chapter titled “Franchises I Would Like to Reboot.” Now, Mindy Kaling being rom-com-loving Mindy Kaling, she pitched this reboot as a tale of four otherwise-normal ladies in New York struggling to balance their ghostbusting duties with the pursuit of true love. She also readily acknowledged that everyone might not be on board with this idea: “I’m not an idiot,” she wrote. “I know the demographic for Ghostbusters is teenage boys, and I know they would kill themselves if two ghostbusters had a makeover at Sephora. »

News Roundup: ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ and ‘Will & Grace’ Stars Join Hulu’s ‘Dimension 404’

27 June 2016 2:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Will & Grace’s” Megan Mullally and “Fresh off the Boat’s” Constance Wu have been cast in Hulu’s “Dimension 404,” plus more in today’s TV news roundup…

Casting

Megan Mullally and Constance Wu have been cast in Hulu’s upcoming sci-fi anthology series “Dimension 404.”

Inspired by the internet’s “404” error code, “Dimension 404” from RocketJump and Lionsgate aims to evoke that 3 a.m. feeling of wandering onto the weird side of the web, stumbling upon stories that cannot be explained in the world that we know. Each episode will explore a different bizarre mystery, including an obscure cartoon that may hold the secret to time travel or energy drinks perhaps causing a global apocalypse.

Mullally and Wu join previously announced cast members including Lea Michele, Robert Buckley, Ryan Lee, Sarah Hyland, Joel McHale, Ashley Rickards and Patton Oswalt. The growing cast will appear in different episodes with Mullally and Wu starring together.
