'Bent': Amanda Peet is not broken on NBC
Coming to NBC midseason is "Bent," a Tad Quill ("Scrubs," "Spin City") penned romantic comedy about the most unlikely of pairings.
Amanda Peet stars as Alex, a no nonsense lawyer who is recently divorced and raising her 8-year-old daughter with a jailed ex-husband. When she decides to remodel her kitchen, Pete ( David Walton) comes strutting into her life and begins to break down her walls (both literally and figuratively, we presume). He's a beach bum, a womanizer and exactly the type of man that would typically repulse Alex.
Joining Peet and Walton are Jeffrey Tambor, Margo Harshman and the adorable Joey King. Craig Zisk of "Nurse Jackie" and "Weeds" directs as we watch two people who are "bent, but not broken."
