BEN AND KATE stars Dakota Johnson (“21 Jump Street,” “The Five Year Engagement”) and Nat Faxon (“Bad Teacher,” Academy Award-winning co-screenwriter of “The Descendants”) as a pair of odd-couple siblings – one a responsible single mom; the other an exuberant dreamer – who reunite to help raise Kate’s daughter, Maddie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones, “We Bought A Zoo”). Dana Fox (NEW GIRL, “What Happens in Vegas”) is creator/executive producer. BEN AND KATE is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Chernin Entertainment.

Kasdan directed the pilot.
THE MINDY PROJECT is a biting new single-camera comedy from Emmy Award-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling (“The Office”), that follows a woman who, despite having a successful career, is unlucky in love and desperately needs to get her personal life back on track before her friends and colleagues are forced to stage an
intervention. THE MINDY PROJECT is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment in association with Universal Television. The series is created and written by Mindy Kaling. Kaling, Howard Klein (“The Office,” “Parks and Recreation”), Matt Warburton (THE SIMPSONS) and Michael Spillman (“Modern Family”) are executive producers. Charles McDougall (“The Office,” “Parks and Recreation”) directed the pilot.
