Zach Braff is about to face his biggest challenge.
In the first of two Alex, Inc. episodes airing Wednesday, Sophia Bush makes a memorable debut as Vanessa Stanhope, a shock jock whose popular radio show Alex Schuman (Braff) appears on in order to promote his podcast but ends up revealing way more than he bargained for. In ET's exclusive sneak peek from the installment, titled "The Cop Car," things get off to a rocky start when Alex proudly shows off his talking points.
"This isn't public radio, man. My listeners don't want to hear you softly try to solve a murder mystery to indie music for 12 weeks," Vanessa cracks. "These are people who are stuck in traffic. They want you to make them laugh. Keep it punchy. Give me short, sexy anecdotes!"
When Vanessa notices the sheets of paper (the aforementioned talking points) Alex has been holding this entire time, she immediately swipes them off his hands mere seconds before they return from commercial break.
"We are here with Arthur Schumberg," Vanessa intentionally introduces Alex as, prompting him to give a weak correction into the mic, "who wants to tell you about his new podcast. Boring!" She heightens her disinterest by activating a snoring sound effect. "But don't worry, he was just about to tell me about the best sex he's ever had."
Well, things certainly got hot... fast. Watch the exclusive sneak peek above to see what happens next.
"We really set out to make a show that families could watch together," Braff told ET's Leanne Aguilera at winter Television Critics Association press tour in January. "Scrubs, some people might recall, was risque. We were on at 9:30 p.m. Bill Lawrence was trying to push what we could do on TV. We were trying to go the other way [with Alex, Inc.] and try and fit in with what ABC -- in the spirit of Black-ish, Modern Family and The Middle -- something that parents could feel comfortable watching with their kids and isn't something, like, earmuffs all the time."
Alex, Inc. airs two episodes on Wednesday, April 25 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
