There is nothing more precious for a show creator in this day and age than the trust and the full creative support of a TV network. At the Awardsline screening for Lifetime‘s Devious Maids Monday night, creator Marc Cherry revealed one kinky scene the network let him get away with.
If the TV networks are wondering where their female under-25 audience was last night — they were at the Awardsline screening of Fox’s The Mindy Project. Fox always knew better than to cancel Mindy Project, and for anyone who ever had their doubts about the show’s popularity, given its low nightly ratings, look no further than the stampede of women who showed up at the Landmark Theatre in West LA to catch the season finale “Danny and Mindy” and to get a chance to meet star/executive producer Mindy Kaling and castmembers Ike Barinholtz, Adam Pally, Ed Weeks, Xosha Roquemore and Beth Grant. Making good with those who couldn’t get into the overbooked screening, Kaling threw herself into the crowd for selfies, autographs and hugs. One fan exclaimed to Kaling, “To have an Indian woman like you onscreen, who is so nuanced, so smart and witty, who has flaws and strengths, it means so much to girls like me.”
