Mindy and Ellie
The Comedy Gift War has taken a turn. You've heard stories before, but now there are two new shows that have entered the foray. The Mindy Project and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. While on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Mindy Kaling (whose writing staff includes Ike Barinholtz and Tracey Wigfield, who also wrote for 30 Rock with Tina Fey, who now writers for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt with Robert Carlock, also from 30 Rock, and Ellie Kemper, who starred on The Office with Mindy) divulged the information that the writing staffs of the two shows have been dueling each other with gifts. Fey and crew sent Mindy and the gang personal massages. In response, Mindy sent a puppy party to the Netflix show. In another response Hulu was sent an entire group of a capella performers, in true Office fashion. It must be exciting to see what will be sent next!
