Fox first look: ‘The Mindy Project’

The first thing to realize about Fox’s fall sitcom “The Mindy Project” is that Mindy Kaling is not playing Kelly Kapoor of “The Office.” While they might have been raised on the same pop culture, Kaling’s new incarnation is more earnest and real. And pretty charming on first appearance.
