First Look: Watch Trailers for All of Fox's New Series (Video)
Just hours after announcing its 2012-13 schedule, Fox has unveiled trailers for its three freshman comedies and two dramas.
On the drama side, the network has a thriller from The Vampire Diaries' Kevin Williamson starring Kevin Bacon and a drama from the creators of Drop Dead Diva starring Jordana Spiro. Comedy rookies include The Office's Mindy Kaling as a young doctor juggling her personal and professional lives an a project from the gang behind How I Met Your Mother starring Scott Foley and Becki Newton.
Check out the five trailers, below.
Ben & Kate, from Couples Retreat scribe Dana Fox, revolves around a single mother (Dakota Johnson) who gets an assist from her brother (Nat Faxon), who moves in with her to help her raise her baby. The title character is a heightened version of Fox's brother, Ben Fox. Airs Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m.
