The Office’s David Rogers directs The Mindy Project

Here’s a note I received from The Office editor/producer/director David Rogers:

I joined The Mindy Project at the start of this season as a Supervising Producer/Director/Editor and this Tuesday night’s episode is the first I’ve directed since coming on board and the first TV show I’ve directed since A.A.R.M. It’s a really great episode and FOX actually moved it up on the schedule since it’s so much fun to see her out of her element and joining the gang as they go to an amateur Mixed Martial Arts fight.

Guest stars include Ben Feldman (“Mad Men”), Kendra Wilkinson (“The Girls Next Door”), Josh Peck (“Drake and Josh”) and UFC President Dana White.

Watch The Mindy Project episode “Bro Club For Dudes” this Tuesday, October 22 9:30pm on FOX!
