That gem of an analysis comes from TVLine’s exclusive first look at former Happy Endings star Eliza Coupe‘s new series, premiering Oct. 28 at 10:30/9:30c.

You know what, it’s probably just best if Coupe explains the series herself. So hit PLAY on the preview video below, then drop a comment: Will you be watching Benched next month?
