Exclusive: Lindsay Sloane Heads to Fox's Ben and Kate as Nat Faxon's Ex-Girlfriend

It’s Ben and Kate and… Louise!

The hilarious Lindsay Sloane (Weeds, Grosse Pointe) has booked a guest stint on Fox’s promising new fall sitcom as Louise, an ex-girlfriend of Ben’s (Nat Faxon) who unexpectedly tracks him down now that he’s returned to town.

The comedy, which premieres Sept. 25 at 8:30/7:30c as a lead-in to New Girl, revolves around an uptight single mom (played by Dakota Johnson) whose aimless brother (Faxon) moves in to help raise her daughter (Maggie Jones).

Sloane guest-starred on a spring episode of Psych as a Bachelorette-type contestant whose potential mate mysteriously ends up in a coma.

  • I think this show could use a title change. Every time I hear it I think there should be a “Plus Eight” after it. And nobody thinks that is a good thing anymore.

  • The promos are simply awful, but the pilot is getting a very warm reception from critics.

    Plus it’s got Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan from Community as show-runners, which is a good sign.
