Mindy Kaling’s romantic comedy television series, “The Mindy Project,” is currently in its sixth and last season but Kaling, who is pregnant with her first child, already has some interesting projects lined up for her fans.

The Indian American actress has signed on to executive produce two comedy projects in development at NBC that hail from the creative team behind “The Mindy Project,” according to report in Variety.

The first is a currently untitled series from Lang Fisher, who is a co-executive producer, writer, and director on “The Mindy Project,” according to the report, which adds that the series would follow the dedicated diplomats of a small U.S. embassy in the Caribbean who are suddenly thrown into chaos when an unqualified, ignorant and hard-living oil man is appointed as their new ambassador.

Fisher will write the project in addition to serving as executive producer. Kaling will executive produce along with David Miner and “Mindy Project” executive producer Howard Klein. Universal Television will produce in association with 3 Arts Entertainment and Kaling International.

The second project, stated the report, is titled, “Venice Beach Venture,” and was created by Matt Warburton, co-showrunner and executive producer of “The Mindy Project.” It is described as a workplace romantic comedy set amidst the booming southern California tech scene, where a brilliant young female engineer faces an exasperating workplace and an arrogant billionaire boss at an elite venture capital firm.

Warburton will write and executive produce. Klein will also executive produce this project along with Kaling, with Universal Television producing in association with 3 Arts and Kaling International, added the report.
