“I remember that so vividly. The nervousness I felt … going into that mostly Harvard room of writers, who had all worked on TV before, and feeling so overwhelmed and being so nervous I was going to get fired every day, for like a year.” Mindy Kaling

“Molly had an identical experience as I had when I first started working on ‘The Office,’ where I was the only minority and the only woman to work on the writing staff.”

“I remember that so vividly. The nervousness I felt … going into that mostly Harvard room of writers, who had all worked on TV before, and feeling so overwhelmed and being so nervous I was going to get fired every day, for like a year.”

“I don’t think it would even be possible to have a writers’ room that looked the way that it did when I was starting out … and I think that would be a real problem for a lot of different people involved at the studio and the network that that would happen, so that’s, I think, really nice. I know there are still some rooms that are like that but it’s becoming more and more obsolete, which is great.”

I feel happy that people think it’s timely because I’ve been working on it for a long time. ”

“I love writing about inclusiveness and employment, about intersectional feminism — those are the kind of things that are interesting to me to write about. I literally feel so lucky that it’s the kind of thing that you’re reading about in the newspapers.”
