The 3rd Floor
From New York Magazine:
Lead singer and director Mindy Kaling tells us there are “pretty ambitious” plans for the group: “There’ll be two songs and two music videos, and the whole cast [including Ellie Kemper, Ed Helms and B.J. Novak] is coming back.” Kaling will direct both videos, as well as the webisodes accompanying the songs. So will the new tracks be dance-oriented like “Prima Donna,” or can we look forward to a slow jam? “The writers tried to cover so many different genres [with the songs] because we do it so infrequently,” Kaling explains, promising that at least one video will have elements of time travel.
