What I’m talking about
It’s the sixth and final season of The Mindy Project on Hulu which means we will be without the series that had a stylish female lead who didn’t compromise about being professional AND embracing color!
“Costume designing The Mindy Project has been a career defining experience for me, I could never have imagined how magical this project would be. Looking back over six seasons and 117 episodes, I am very proud of the colorful, fashionable world I was able to create and share with the fans of The Mindy Project. This exhibit is a gift to the fans who have been so supportive all these years,” said costume designer Salvador Perez.
To celebrate this milestone the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills will have “The Mindy Project”: Six Seasons of Style Curated by Costume Designer Salvador Perez interactive exhibit with cast costumes from past and present seasons. It will feature life-size episodic photography, costume sketches and behind-the-scenes video segments that will take visitors inside Mindy Lahiri’s fun, fabulous and oh-so-stylish closet! The first-of-its-king exhibit is curated by the series’ Emmy-nominated Costume Designer and President of the Costume Designers Guild, Salvador Perez and will run exclusively at the Paley Center beginning August 26, 2017.
“We’re thrilled to give fans of The Mindy Project the rare up-close opportunity to see the fun and vibrant costumes worn by the loveable Mindy Lahiri,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “This exclusive exhibit is one of the many examples of the unique, artistic, and immersive exhibit experiences the Paley Center provides to visitors year round.”
“Salvador Perez is an incredible artist who matched Mindy Lahiri’s larger-than-life personality with couture beyond any woman’s dreams. You may not approve of everything Mindy says, but you always approve of her fashion,” said The Mindy Project creator, writer, executive producer and star Mindy Kaling.
The final, sixth season of The Mindy Project premieres Tuesday, September 12 on Hulu, with new episodes streaming weekly on Tuesdays. All episodes of seasons one through five are currently streaming on Hulu.
In addition to the exhibit, the cast and creative team of The Mindy Project, including Mindy Kaling, will appear at the Paley Center on September 8, as part of PaleyFest Fall Previews. The evening will include a special preview of the upcoming season and an intimate discussion with the cast and creative team, followed by an audience Q & A.

|The Mindy Project:
Nashville is giving fans the holiday gift of a sneak preview of the premiere on Thursday, December 15th at 9PM ET/PT before the Season 5 starts January.
Watch “Nashville” live on Thursday, December 15 at 9pm ET/PT. The series is shot on location and is produced by Lionsgate, ABC Studios and Opry Entertainment that has found a new home on CMT.
Like a lot of fans I flipped when ABC announced they would not renew the series that left so many unanswered question but when fans called out the city of Nashville and CMT picked up the show and now we get to find out what is in store for a loving but dysfunctional characters. I mean watching Maddie manipulated by her Svengali adult friend into declaring herself an adult, tossing her to the nefarious producer that was just about to take advantage of the teen before her father Deacon swooped in like an avenging night .. well <zoinks> that was some major nighttime soap drama that will keep me tuning into the new season.
We catch up with Rayna and Deacon as Maddie is back home trying to navigate womanhood, ambition and independence while still being a teenager. It looks like Maddie has a new crush with a young black boy or man (he looks like he’s age appropriate) but I hope Rayna and Deacon don’t ignore their youngest daughter as the deal with their wild child! Of course Rayna still has to juggle Highway 65 that isn’t the successful label she had hoped especially when her marque star Juliette has lost some of her luster. Juliette has always been a spitfire dealing with a difficult childhood, bad taste in men and hair trigger temper. But Juliette is still reeling from her post partum depression, messy divorce and if she will survive the plane.
Well as a fan I have no idea what drama awaits us but I know we’ll have great music as we enjoy the return of Nashville with tears, screams and choosing sides! I’m Team Juliette all the way!
“Nashville” is set against the backdrop of the city’s music scene and follows Rayna Jaymes and Juliette Barnes. Both women face personal and professional challenges as they navigate their paths as artists and individuals. Surrounding them and often complicating their lives are their family, friends and, in some cases, lovers, as well as the up-and-coming performers and songwriters trying to get ahead in the business. Music City can mean so many things to different people. In “Nashville,” musicians and songwriters are at the heart of the storm driven by their own ambitions. Some are fueled by their creativity and passion for fame. Others struggle to cope with the pressures of success and are doing everything in their power to stay on top.
“Nashville” stars Connie Britton as Rayna Jaymes, Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, Clare Bowen as Scarlett O’Connor, Chris Carmack as Will Lexington, Charles Esten as Deacon Claybourne, Jonathan Jackson as Avery Barkley, Sam Palladio as Gunnar Scott, Maisy Stella as Daphne Conrad and Lennon Stella as Maddie Conrad. In addition, the upcoming season will feature Joseph David-Jones as Clay, Rhiannon Giddens as Hallie Jordan, Jen Richards as Allyson Del Lago, and Cameron Scoggins as Zach Welles in recurring roles.
Produced by Lionsgate, ABC Studios and Opry Entertainment, production is currently underway in Nashville. The series is executive produced by Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick (the creators of “Thirtysomething”), Steve Buchanan and Callie Khouri. Jayson Dinsmore and Morgan Selzer executive produce for CMT.

Since its debut, the show has inspired 10 soundtracks, including a Christmas album, which have collectively sold more than one million album units and over 5 million single-track downloads to date.

I’m a huge fan of the Mindy Kaling Project and when it first premiered on Fox I was very curious about a female led series starring a woman who didn’t look like a lead cast member on TV normally. I fell in love with the zany series as I followed a woman that was like me. Doing OK with the career but love life was a complete diseaster always choosing the wrong guy for the wrong reason.
Thursday, September 15 – HULU
PaleyFest Fall TV Previews Special Event:
The Mindy Project: Inside the Writers Room
Mindy Kaling, Creator, Executive Producer and “Mindy Lahiri”
Ike Barinholtz, “Morgan Tookers”
Matt Warburton, Executive Producer
When Fox canceled the series I yelled <boo> from the rooftops the show wasn’t perfect but it was fun and one of the few series led by an Asian actress! When Hulu took the opportunity to continue the series I expected a big change from budget per episode to more freedom to explore adult subject matters. Hulu has delivered more a signature series that keeps me subscribing but no binging since it’s released weekly like network TV.
I’ve always wanted to chat with not just the cast and producers but the writers of the series that embraces a quirky curvy woman who is confident and sexual. Well the Paley Center has answered my prayers! This year the Paley Fest opening Fall TV Preview 2016 will be a talk with the writers of the series.
I want to chat with them about the major cast change of Danny and Mindy splitting up to accommodate his no longer being a FT cast member. Last season they explored co-parenting with humor and the sharp edges of two strong willed people still trying to control the other. I think the sixth season should be a great arc and able to focus on not only new regular cast members but more of her co-workers at the clinic. I really like the storyline of the egg clinic but it can be a story suck with not that much payback so hope they cut it down even further so that we can enjoy her interacting with dating, navigating being a single divorced mom and friendship. Every woman needs her crew!
If I get on the red carpet I want to ask about how they will handle Danny as a recurring character. Will he be written out or use text/phone calls/notes to keep the story of co-parenting. Does Hulu allow free reign with humor and adult subject matter or have they ever looked at a script and said that’s a step TOO far?!? Will you age up the child to create more comedy situations with him going to school and being a rebellious kid? I know that they have shoehorned a connection with the new doctor but I’d like her to be back on the market and dating ‘United Nations’ style! It’s hilarious when Mindy skewers the casual racism within POC communities. I’d love to have more episodes of Mindy interacting with the Indian and Asian communities with episodes of how Asian’s rank themselves, introducing her son to other interracial kids/families, a ‘funny’ episode about profiling and her exploring more Indian centric episodes with her family. I LOVE her brother he’s hilarious, handsome and can sing! Have they ever thought of a Bollywood/Musical episode with original music and lots of dancing! I love that Mindy loves her curvy body and that she’s a confidant sexual woman. For instance a suit makes you think of a line or episode?
That’s a lot of questions but I am very curious about the writers of this zany series. What do you think I should ask the stars and writers? Leave the question below…..
If you haven’t been watching Guillermo Del Toro and Carlton Cuse horror series The Strain you’ve missed out on one of the best series on TV. You can watch either streaming on Hulu or grab a disc/blu ray at local retailers.
I found this ‘vampire’ series fascinating because it sort of fits with my belief that vampires are scary as F! I mean I love the idea of being young forever but I’ve never thought they’d be beautiful and the idea of bringing blood is soo gross. I mean I’ve never seen a comic book or movie where people talk about rather vampires could get STDs or AIDS especially when they were humans.
The Strain handles the idea that humans would no longer be at the top of the food chain in a scary way. I mean who would really believe that Vampires would exist and that they were killing people. I mean the average person would not believe ‘their own lying’ eyes if they saw an attack or would run screaming (I know I would run like a scalded cat).
If the Master offered to turn you (a higher Vamp) would you say yes? Or would you be team human fighting against the scourge?

In the words of Peter Gould himself: “I hate to say it, but there is no master plan.”
I can’t deny the illicit delight from my secret love of Hulu’s Difficult People a series about nothing but unpleasant dysfunctional people in NYC. I’m very excited that it’s been added to the 2016 Paleyfest LA with Julie Klausner, Billy Eichner, Andrea Martin, James Urbaniak, Cole Escola, Scott King attending to discuss the series. It’s the modern Seinfeld that I didn’t realize I wanted to see until I was seduced from the very fist episode. I mean really who doesn’t want to eat after a funeral??? Such a fun show for the inner meanie in us all! So binge on Difficult People an original comedy on Hulu and join me at the PaleyFest LA for the panel on 3/18 tickets are available on Ticketmaster.
The Hulu series follows two bitter failed comics Julie Kessler (Julia Klausner) and Billy Epstein (Billy Eichner) as the see other ‘lesser talented’ people make it as they get older. Julie lives with her boyfriend Arthur Tack (James Urbaniak) who works at PBS and Billy works at a cafe owned by Nate (Derrick Baskin) and Denise (Gabourey Sidibe). Matthew (Cole Escolar) is Denise’s pretend son/best friend is a waiter who’s getting lucky breaks because he’s young, cute and funny. Julia’s mother a successful psychiatrist Marilyn Kessler (Andrea Martin) is the foundation of her esteem issues with little cuts of verbal disapproval aka looking for a hanger (Mommy Dearest). Each episode is self sabotage on why they didn’t and haven’t made it with making enemies left and right because they are unpleasant as hell!
