If Mindy Kaling had been producing “Big Little Lies”, it would have been a very different TV show.
On Dec. 21, the star of “The Mindy Project” and creator of series “Never Have I Ever” and “The Sex Lives of College Girls” took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the HBO hit.
“The problem with big little lies is that it shouldn’t have been a series,” she writes, explaining that it instead “should’ve been a franchise” like the “Real Housewives”, allowing viewers to “follow different groups of dysfunctional hot moms all over the US.”

“Real Housewives” mastermind Andy Cohen agreed, tweeting, “That show WAS housewives!”

I would pay good money to watch “Big Little Lies: Park Slope” tbh.

Sounds like you've got an idea that should be run with! I'd watch that all day every day!
