Los Angeles, Feb 18 (PTI) Actor-producer Mindy Kaling is set to executive produce the small screen adaptation of 'Gold Diggers', a novel by former reporter Sanjena Sathian.

The book, to be released on April 6 by publishing house Penguin Press, will be developed under Kaling's banner, Kaling International.

Sathian will co-write the adaptation and serve as a co-executive producer, reported Deadline.

Spanning two continents, two coasts, and four epochs, 'Gold Diggers' expertly balances social satire and magical realism in a classic striver story that skewers the model minority narrative, asking what a community must do to achieve the American dream.

The makers are currently scouting for potential showrunners and co-writers.

The show will fall under Kaling's overall production deal with Warner Bros Television.

Howard Klein of 3 Arts will also executive produce alongside Kaling.

Jessica Kumai Scott will co-executive produce for Kaling International.

Kaling is gearing up for the release of the second season of the Netflix comedy drama 'Never Have I Ever', which she has co-created and co-executive produced. PTI RDS RDS
