‘The Mindy Project’ Episode Guide (Dec. 2): Peter Complicates Mindy’s Relationship

“What About Peter?” (12/02/14) – Mindy is so determined to help Peter with his living situation that her own relationship with Danny gets a little complicated.

Meanwhile, things go haywire for Jeremy and Morgan when they’re left alone watching Lauren’s baby boy, Henry, in an all-new episode of “The Mindy Project” airing Tuesday, Dec. 2 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Guest starring in this episode are Tracey Wigfield as Lauren Neustadter, Andrew Bachelor as TJ Gigak, Stephen Park as Ray, Jon Barinholtz as Pube, Leonard Jackson as Pubeless and Scott MacArthur as Bush.

“The Mindy Project” is a single-camera comedy created by and starring Emmy Award-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling (“The Office”). Returning for its third season, the series follows a skilled OB/GYN trying to balance both her personal and professional life.

Dr. Mindy Lahiri (Kaling) is a talented obstetrician with a chaotic personal life, who struggles to find the perfect relationship, remain focused at work, stay current on reality TV and channel her inner warrior – Beyoncé Pad Thai.

Mindy shares a practice with three doctors, none of whom makes life any easier for her. Dr. Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) is a guys’ guy whose on-again-off-again romance with Mindy this past season kept the office staff on its toes. Dr. Jeremy Reed (Ed Weeks), the office’s managing partner, is the resident punching bag, and Dr. Peter Prentice (Adam Palley), a high-fiving former frat boy, knows nothing about the opposite sex, but insists on doling out relationship advice to Mindy.

Rounding out the medical staff is male nurse Morgan Tookers (Ike Barinholtz), a reformed ex-con with a heart of gold who, despite his best intentions, always seems to land himself in trouble; the grumpy and absent-minded nurse Beverly (Beth Grant); and Tamra (Xosha Roquemore), a nurse who would rather dish gossip and dole out beauty tips than do anything resembling work.

Mindy’s love life rivaled a real-life romantic comedy this past season, when she fell for her office sparring partner, Danny. Their relationship skyrocketed to new heights when the two shared a kiss in an airplane, but when their feet hit the ground, the two doctors struggled to make their relationship work. Danny ended the romance and then acted like a jealous boyfriend when Mindy dated other men. But in the second season finale, it appeared Mindy got her fairy tale ending atop the Empire State Building, giving “Harry” and “Sally” a run for their money. Season Three will continue to explore Mindy and Danny’s romantic and professional relationship.

“The Mindy Project” is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment in association with Universal Television. The series is created and written by Mindy Kaling. Kaling, Howard Klein, Matt Warburton, Michael Spiller and Jack Burditt are executive producers.
