In an October interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the show creator Kaling shared that she drew on some of her own college experiences while making the show.
‘All the fear about grades and not fitting in, that I pulled from my own experience. That’s the reason I wanted to do the show. It’s called The Sex Lives of College Girls, but we wanted to tell a story of four passionate, bright girls in college. The romantic stuff just felt like a good hook,’ she said.
The first season of the show is currently available on HBO Max, with the last two episodes set to air this Thursday, December 9.
