Mindy Kaling called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Tuesday to talk about her new show “The Mindy Project” that she is not only starring in, but she is also writing and producing as well. On the show Mindy plays a young OB/GYN doctor trying to balance her personal and professional life.

How Did Mindy Come Up With Her Character?
“My mom was an OB/GYN. I thought the world of being a doctor in New York City was kind of fun and glamorous. A little bit more glamorous than being on ‘The Office.’ I love the movie ‘Bridget Jones‘ and I like that world a lot. I wanted to cast lots of cute guys in the show and go on fake dates and stuff. I thought that would be fun,” she tells us.

On Facebook Stalking Her Ex In The Halloween Episode:
“I think in the episode more even than feeling single, you don’t want your ex to move on before you do. You might have been fine with it until they’re going to have a kid and everything. Then you start feeling really competitive. I just think that’s what that episode was kind of about was my character used to date Bill Hader’s character for awhile and was kind of fine with the break-up until he was moving on and then she got really mad,” Mindy says.

“The Mindy Project” is on Tuesday nights at 9:30/8:30c on FOX.
