There's Gonna Be a Cartoon Version of Mindy Kaling

Greg Daniels, wheeling-and-dealing making-things-happen mensch that he is, is developing two animation projects for NBC, one with The Office's Mindy Kaling and the other with Parks & Rec's Alan Yang. Yang's project is about "20something guys sharing a house in Los Angeles’ upscale community of Hancock Park." Kaling's "revolves around a girls high-school volleyball team," and if it's anything like my high-school volleyball team, I will quit it because the other girls were so competitive that I would start crying on the court during games.

    Looks like NBC is following half of a quarter of Gavin Polone's advice. I don't exactly see men 18-to-49 tuning in for a cartoon about women's volleyball, though Mindy Kaling has shown with The Office that she can write for a large audience.
