ABC-TV ABC is adding three dramas and four comedies to its fall schedule, including a sitcom starring talk show host Kelly Ripa and Faith Ford.

"Hope & Faith" is about a stay-at-home mom and her celebrity sister. Ripa plays the celebrity sister named Faith and Ford plays the mom named Hope.

Another comedy, "I'm With Her," is written by Chris Henchy, who based it partly on his marriage to Brooke Shields.

The dramas include "Threat Matrix," which is about a secret team of terrorist fighters at the Homeland Security Agency.

ABC also announced that the next "Bachelor" will be Bob Guiney from "The Bachelorette" -- and that the network will cover Bachelorette Trista Rehn's wedding to Ryan Sutter.

"The Practice" returns to its old time slot on Sundays @ 10pm on ABC7.
