BEN AND KATE stars newcomer Dakota Johnson and Nat Faxon (“Bad Teacher,” Academy Award-winning co-screenwriter of “The Descendants”) as a pair of odd-couple siblings – one an overly responsible single mom; the other an exuberant dreamer – who reunite to help raise Kate’s daughter, Maddie (Maggie Jones, “We Bought A Zoo”). Created and written by Mindy Kaling (“The Office”), THE MINDY PROJECT stars Kaling as a skilled OB/GYN trying to balance both her personal and professional life.
The following week, on Tuesday, Oct. 2 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), RAISING HOPE returns to the Tuesday night lineup with all-new misadventures of the Chance family. In the Season Three premiere, Golden Globe winner Tippi Hedren and her real-life daughter, Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Melanie Griffith, guest-star as Sabrina’s (Shannon Woodward) grandmother and mother, respectively.
