After six seasons, Mindy Kaling bid farewell to her show, The Mindy Project.

LOS ANGELES (Diya TV) — After six seasons, Mindy Kaling bid farewell to her show, The Mindy Project.

Pregnant with her first child, Kaling posted a photo of herself sitting in the office of her character Mindy Lahiri’s office on Instagram and Twitter, captioned “Last day.”

Following that, she shared a series of 17 posts, including behind-the-scene photos from the first season of the show.

A romantic comedy series premiered in the Fall of 2012, on Fox and aired on Tuesday nights until 2015. Fox canceled the show after three seasons, then the show began airing on Hulu, a subscription video on demand service.

“We’re really excited about this last season,” Kaling told Entertainment Weekly following the show’s cancellation announcement. “I think the timing is exactly right. What’s weird is, Mindy is married at the end of the season 5 finale, but she has never been married in the series, so that’s incredibly fun for a character who’s been obsessed with [marriage] and has come close many times, and seeing her disavow it for while after her disastrous breakup with who she thought was her soul mate. And now she’s married!”

Created by Kaling, the co-producers of the series were Universal Television and 3 Arts Entertainment. The series follows OB/GYN Mindy Lahiri as she tries to balance her personal and professional life, surrounded by quirky co-workers in a small medical practice in New York City.

The 38-year-old also starred in The Office, portraying character Kelly Kapoor. She was included on Time’s list of 100 most influential people in 2012.

Democrat Doug Jones beats Republican Roy Moore for Alabama Senate seat

Published

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — In one of the most intensely fought elections in 2017, Democrat Doug Jones, a former prosecutor has defeated the scandal-clad Republican Roy Moore. Moore who had the endorsement of President Trump, despite allegations of inappropriate sexual behaviour, was defeated on Tuesday in Alabama, a deeply conservative state that last elected a Democratic senator 25 years ago. The upset delivered a surprising victory for the Democrats shaving the Republican Senate majority down to a single seat.

Roy Moore, the Republican candidate who was abandoned by a majority of his own party leaders, lost to Democrat Doug Jones in a battle that wasn’t a battle until the allegations of sexual misconduct began surfacing, including by a woman who was under-age at the time she was allegedly assaulted. Former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney tweeted:


Moore was running to fill a seat left vacant by Jeff Sessions who is Trump’s attorney general and lost to Jones, a former US attorney who had prosecuted two members of the Ku Klux Klan for a 1963 bombing of a church in which four African Americans girls had been killed.
Just hours before the polls opened President Trump tweeted:

But despite the presidential endorsement, Moore was defeated by Jones becoming the first Democrat Alabama has sent to the US senate since 1992. His upset victory owes much to Moore’s flawed candidacy, but was pulled off by the Democratic party machine that poured money and resources sensing a chance, howsoever small at the time, of victory. Including a helping hand from Alabama-native and former NBA star Charles Barkley, who campaigned for Doug Jones. He told CNN “Roy Moore was an embarrassment. I am just so proud of my state. We’ve got some amazing people here and they rose up today”

President Trump congratulated Jones on his victory, over twitter:

After initially holding back his endorsement, Trump had come to fully embrace Moore, arguing that if the allegations were proven, the Republican candidate should step aside. But he needed every vote in the Senate to push through legislative agenda, which has had a patchy run thus far.

Trump broke with most members of his party, including the senior Republican senator from Alabama Richard Shelby who had announced they would not vote for Moore. Jeff Flake, a Republican senator from Arizona, public announced he had donated to Doug Jones’ campaign. Roy Moore hasn’t conceded to Jones and has asked for a recount stating, “It’s not over. I demand a recount. We need to wait for God.”
