In an interview with Mashable, The Mindy Project showrunner Matt Warburton described how premièring season four on Hulu was different to Fox:
It’s like we have to be our own referee about what’s going too far now. We’d try and go as far as we possibly could until Fox told us no. But Hulu loves it, so sometimes we have to be like, “OK, we’re a bunch of perverts. We have to stop this.” It’s been really fun. There are a lot of different ways to be edgy. We know a lot of our fans are younger too, and we don’t want it to be like The Mindy ProjectAfter Dark. But I think the stuff that we do that is edgy tends to be coded. It goes over the head of a lot of people if you are too young. We’ll keep inching dirtier and dirtier every day.
