‘Champions’ is an American comedy series that has been created by Charlie Grandy and Mindy Kaling who are best known for having collaborated on ‘The Mindy Project‘. Kaling also has a name for having lent her voice to notable films like ‘Despicable Me‘, ‘Wreck It Ralph’ and ‘Inside Out‘.
The show revolves around a guy who has the most enviable and laid back lifestyle that a bachelor could hope for.

The show premiered on NBC on March 8, 2018.
