Even the most die-hard Mindy Kaling fans had to acknowledge that The Mindy Project's first season had some flaws. And unfortunately, right when the show seemed to be finding its groove, the season was over. Now, The Mindy Project is back for Season 2 and poised to be the great comedy we always wanted it to be.
The first season of the The Mindy Project suffered from a severe lack of focus. Torn between being a workplace comedy and a meta rom-com, The Mindy Project was a little all over the place. Certain episodes featured so many disjointed story lines that it felt stitched together like a comedy Frankenstein. But even amid the confusion, the show always had enough great jokes — delivered by some of Hollywood's hottest actors — to keep me watching.
HBO has ordered a new relationship comedy from Jay and Mark Duplass starring Amanda Peet, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Togetherness follows two couples living under the same roof while struggling to keep their relationships alive and also pursuing their individual dreams. Mark Duplass (The Mindy Project) stars as Brett Pierson, a guy who seems to have it all, but is secretly having problems both personally and professionally. Two and a Half Men's Melanie Lynskey plays his wife Michelle.
