Both shows debut on TV Sept. 25 and will be available to watch online until Sept. 9 at 5 p.m. ET. FOX first tried this digital-first strategy in 2011 with New Girl, attracting buzz for the show ahead of its televised premiere.

The Mindy Project Pilot

The Mindy Project stars Mindy Kaling, who will play ob-gyn doctor Mindy Lahiri. The character is "unlucky in love and desperately needs to get her personal life back on track before her friends and colleagues are forced to stage an intervention," FOX says. Kaling is best known for her role as Kelly Kapoor on The Office.
