Although The Mindy Project TV show was recently renewed for a sixth and final season on Hulu, creator and star Mindy Kaling isn’t coasting to the finish line. NBC has ordered a new comedy, Champions, from Kaling and Charlie Grandy.
Kaline and Grandy are writing and executive producing the Champions TV series, which stars Anders Holm and Andy Favreau. J.J. Totah, Mouzam Makkar, and Nina Wadia will co-star, with Kaling guest starring.

Here’s more on Champions, from Variety:
The series follows Vince (Anders Holm), a charismatic gym owner with no ambition, lives with his younger brother Michael (Andy Favreau), a gorgeous idiot. Their simple life of women and working out is put on hold when the teenage son of Vince is dropped off on their doorstep by Priya (Kaling), one of his old high school flings.[…] In addition to Kaling and Grandy, Michael Alan Spiller will direct and executive produce. Howard Klein also executive produces. Universal Television, 3 Arts Entertainment, Eyes Up Productions and Kaling International produce the series.
