Mindy Kaling just inked a huge multi-year overall deal with NBC Universal!

Exclusively reported by Variety, this deal is the first big move for new NBCU president Pearlena Igbokwe who said of Kaling: “She’s incredibly funny and smart, and she has her pulse on what it takes to produce, write and star in television that is relevant and insightful. I’m eagerly looking forward to terrific things ahead from Mindy in both half-hour and one-hour television.”

This deal will keep Mindy in the Universal family beyond a 5th season of The Mindy Project. The studio has her for more seasons of the show as well as for the development of new projects for which she could be actor/producer/writer/queen.
