Fox first look: ‘Ben and Kate’

Sandwiched between “Raising Hope” and “New Girl” at 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays on Fox’s fall schedule, “Ben and Kate” is a logical bridge between the two comedies. Settling somewhere between the down-home quality of “Hope” and the urban hipsteria of “Girl,” “Ben and Kate” offers Oscar-winning “The Descendants” co-writer Nat Faxon onscreen opposite Dakota Johnson (“The Five Year Engagement”), as an odd couple brother and sister with a shared interest in the daughter of Johnson’s character, played by Maggie Jones. Lucy Punch (“You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger”) and Echo Kellum co-star.

For me, even more so than usual with these preview clips, I felt a need to see more. The appeal of the characters varied in different moments, and I’m definitely curious to see which prevails. Based on the early promise of “The Mindy Project,” Fox might have the real-deal four-comedy Tuesday that entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly has long dreamed of.
