Nice to Chicago's mark all over this TCA panel: Evanston and Winnetka native Jake Johnson from "New Girl," North Sider Ike Barinholtz ("Mindy Project") and South Sider Echo Kellum ("Ben and Kate").
Mindy Kaling and Ike (now a series regular) are here on behalf of "The Mindy Project," which has really hit its stride recently.
Kaling said Seth Rogen will guest star in an upcoming episode. He'll play her first kiss at Jewish summer camp.
"New Girl's" Johnson and Zooey Deschanel talked about their will they/won't they dynamic.
"I think it's a lot of fun. The writers are putting us together a lot more this season," Johnson said.
Nat Faxon of "Ben and Kate" is enjoying the increased exposure the show has brought him:
"I've been the super hot guy's fourth friend in a lot of things," Faxon said about life before the show -- and his "Descendants" Oscar.
While Kaling is focusing on making her show a hit, she says she'd love to go back to "The Office" before it wraps its final season...
