Mindy Kaling's Office co-star Angela Kinsey has nothing but praise for the actress as she takes on her first solo TV project.
The 32-year-old's new show, The Mindy Project, is due to start in the US later this year.
Angela said: "She wrote it, she's the star of it - she's brilliant. I can't wait to support her."
The Mindy Project will centre on a young doctor, played by Mindy, attempting to navigate her personal life and career.
Mindy, who plays Kelly Kapoor on The Office, will co-star with Anna Camp, Chris Messina and Ed Weeks in the new series.
Speaking at the Gracie Awards in Los Angeles, Angela - who plays uptight accountant Angela Martin on The Office - also said she felt lucky to work with the comic actresses she shares the screen with.
"The women on our show are so funny," she said. "It's an honour to be with these women all day."
