Dork and Mindy: Chicagoan Ike Barinholtz ready to throw his weight around on new project
After years spent making her mark as a writer and performer on "The Office," Mindy Kaling is branching out with her own show. A hospital workplace comedy that knowingly tackles rom-com cliches, "The Mindy Project" debuts at 8:30 p.m. Sept. 25 on Fox and is one of the most talked-about new sitcoms of the fall season. And like so many major comedies currently on television, you'll find a Chicagoan deeply rooted in the mix.
