NBC Orders Mindy Kaling/Charlie Grandy Sitcom Pilot

Potential Series is Reminiscent of CBS' Long-Running 'Two and a Half Men'

“The Mindy Project” star and creator Mindy Kaling and executive producer Charlie Grandy are teaming up for a new potential single-camera sitcom for NBC focusing on a charismatic gym owner with no ambition who lives with his younger brother, who is described as a gorgeous idiot. Their simple life of women and working out (reminiscent of “Two and a Half Men”) is put on hold when they have to take in the older brother’s son — whom they have never met.

Universal Television and 3 Arts Entertainment are the production companies, along with the star’s firm Kaling International, Inc.

“The Mindy Project,” which aired on Fox for three seasons, was picked up by Hulu and recently began its fifth season (and second on the digital streamer).
