Set to join Glee and another new comedy on Sunday nights this fall is Fox’s new series Raising Hope. We have some info on the series as well as a few clips to give you an idea of what this new show is all about.
Raising Hope is a single-camera comedy that centers on Jimmy Chance (Lucas Neff), a guy who (based on Fox’s description below) sounds like kind of a loser and ends up raising the child who’s conceived during a one-night-stand with a wanted felon. Among the cast is Martha Plimpton, whom many will remember as the outspoken Stef in the classic ‘80’s film The Goonies. From the clips we have, it seems she’s playing a grouchy, cig-smoking cleaning lady who also happens to be Jimmy’s mother.
According to Fox’s schedule, Raising Hope is set to air Tuesday nights between Glee and their new comedy Running Wilde this fall.
