Ben and Kate
Premieres Tuesday, September 25, 8:30pm ET on Fox
Sandwiched nicely between Raising Hope and New Girl, Ben and Kate follows the trials and tribulations of a pair of mismatched siblings forced to live under the same roof. Dakota Johnson (the celebrity offspring of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith) stars as Kate, a young, sensible single mom working hard as a bar manager to make ends meet and support her 5-year-old daughter, Maddie. Kate’s big brother Ben, who never managed to grow up, worms his way back into his sister’s life – and home – and plays “Mr. Mom” to let Kate let loose and finally enjoy life. The show is getting buzz for its charming characters and talented cast (including raves for Maggie Jones’ portrayal of Maddie andLucy Punch’s turn as Kate’s best buddy and co-worker) and is helping Fox establish Tuesdays as a solid night for comedy. If you can't wait until September, Fox is giving you an early look at the pilot episode, which will be available online via Hulu and Fox.com for two weeks starting on August 27.
