"Writing and acting actually makes it a little bit easier, because I have a direct line to the writer," Mindy said.However, she added that it's hard to "stop thinking about being a producer when I'm on stage, and just kind of giving myself over to the part."
Luckily, the Emmy-nominated actress doesn't feel spread too thin.
"I don't think of them as two different roles anymore... I feel both at the same time."
Mindy also dished on some guest stars she'd like to score for the show.
"I love Danny McBride, and I love Reese Witherspoon," Mindy said. "They're both so funny, and they're both such good actors. I just think they would be a lot of fun to have on set."
