“The Office’s” Kelly Kapoor may be getting a transfer.
Fox has given the green light to a pilot starring Mindy Kaling, who plays the spunky Kapoor, that could end her long run on the NBC show, according to Deadline.com. The series is about “a young Bridget Jones-type Ob/Gyn doctor balancing personal and professional life, surrounded by quirky co-workers in a small office,” according to the story. Kaling would both co-star as well as co-executive produce the series.
If the project goes to series, Kaling would not be able to return to “The Office” next season, and her contract is up at the end of the current run of the series.
