Local girl Mindy Kaling, whose show “The Mindy Project” was inspired by her mom’s work at St. Elizabeth’s in Brighton, joined such actresses as Laura Dern, Zooey Deschanel, and Kat Dennings at Variety’s Emmy Studio “Leading Actress in a Comedy Series” panel event in West Hollywood on Wednesday. Eligibility for 2013 Emmys nominations ends Friday, which means that Kaling’s sitcom, which premiered last year, is in the running.
