Mindy Kaling, Zooey and Emily Deschanel have each other on speed dial

Posted on

Beth Dubber/Fox

Fox just made our alternate-TV-universe gal-pal dreams come true. Haven’t you ever imagined what would happen if your favorite female protagonists crossed over into each other’s shows? And what it would be like to have Mindy Kaling on relationship speed dial?

Fox is rolling out a series of character mash-up videos called Smash Chat in which Dr. Mindy Lahiri (Kaling, The Mindy Project) intercepts a phone call between Danny (Chris Messina, The Mindy Project) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel, The New Girl) and girl-crushes on Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel, Bones).

In the first video, see the queens of quirky-cute, Mindy and Jess, in a not-so-cute missed connection call.

Though they’re both accomplished independent women, sometimes girls need to vent. Dr. Lahiri calls up Dr. Brennan about her latest guy-fiasco in what is clearly the middle of a work day.

TV stars, they’re just like us! Kinda.

The Mindy Project and The New Girl return Sept. 17; Bones returns Sept. 16
