Mindy Kaling hasn’t had to write a script on the life of Michael Scott and his Dunder Mifflin employees in eight years (!), but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t think about it.
PureWow recently sat down to chat with The Mindy Project actress about her latest partnership with T.J.Maxx and the launch of "The Change Exchange" Pen Pal Program. The empowering letter-writing program is designed to help women connect with each other and feel supported as they navigate moments of change (sign up here).
Naturally, we took a moment to ask The Office star how she believes Michael Scott and Kelly Kapoor would be handling the coronavirus pandemic. According to Kaling, neither of them would be coping with work from home life well.
“I feel like this past year and a half would have been such fertile ground for The Office,” Kaling told us. “I think that Kelly—whose job could have been done pretty much remote throughout the beginning of the show—would be hating not being at work because she thrives so much on work gossip and being around Ryan. So, it would be killing her.”
