Today, at the grand conference of cool pop culture SXSW, Editor in Chief of Marie Claire Anne Fulenwider ran a panel discussion entitled "Running the Show: TV's New Queen of Comedy" with Mindy Kaling. And! It was announced that there would indeed be a Season 3 for The Mindy Project! Kaling, who was later joined by her co-stars (and employees?) Adam Pally and Ike Barinholtz talked about all sorts of things from Twitter to navigating TV as a woman and an Indian-American:
"It's challenging to get your own show no matter what…One of the things that's been helpful to me is that I try not to think that much about the fact that I'm Indian-American. I've felt that constantly people assume I'm not funny. People will think that you're not funny because of the way that you look."
Maybe one sweet day, brown people won't feel discomfort with being Indian and American and funny. While we were all sitting and waiting for that moment to come, Kaling attended a Marie Claire dinner in her honor because whatever, it's fucking Sunday.
