A message from Lester:

Hey Tallyheads,

Since the WGA strike, I’ve been helping start a new website called Strike TV. We’re gonna launch soon with tons of new for-the-web shows created by Hollywood writers.

Mindy Kaling and I wrote a short that she stars in, which will premiere in the first batch. Please visit www.strike.tv to read my blog. And don’t forget to sign up! We want to keep you in the loop.

Thanks, guys!

Lester Lewis


  1. Mindy’s writing is great, but I like seeing her act more than anything, so great news.

  2. I can’t wait for the full-length version!! Mindy, Lester AND Busy Phillipps (Audrey from Dawson’s Creek…yeah, I’m still a Creek Geek) all involved means it’s going to be fantastic!

  3. OMG!!! the pregnant lady is from freaks and geeks!!! i just know it. argh, i cant remember her name..but FREAKS AND GEEKS!!!

    well i am excited for mindy too :) hehe

  4. How cool! I will definitely sign up for this. And yes, Freaks and Geeks rule!!!! I have been watching the DVDs to get ready for Pineapple Express…

  5. I’ve seen the first episode of House Poor, and it is amaaaaazing!

    Mindy also has a small role in another great short called “Global Warming” with Kristin Wiig and Aasif Mandvi (from the Daily Show), which allows her to show off her spectacular Indian accent.

  6. Wow today is like two holidays in one “Divali” and the Strike.tv “launch day”. Check out all the shorts and comment on the message boards at strike.tv.

  7. I tried to sign up for striketv but it kept saying i had an invalid date of birth. I checked, and you only have to be thirteen which I am way, way over. Anyone else have this problem?

  8. Hey guys, Lester here from “The Office.” Mindy and I are so glad you are enjoying “House Poor.” We’re trying to build a fanbase so PLEASE tell your friends to go to http://www.strike.tv and watch the show. The more viewers we get, the more motivated we’ll be to shoot more episodes! :-)

  9. Hey Jamie,

    We are currently fixing a glitch with the registration process. Hope to have it working very soon.
