Update: Amanda Peet is set for Bent. This will be her first return to television since her role on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.
Peet is looking at a single-camera comedy called Bent, which comes to us from Tad Quill from Scrubs. The show would have Peet playing an uptight, divorced housewife who hires a hunky, laid-back, surfer-dude handyman and tries her darndest to resist his...er...charms. Sounds just about right for Peet, who's played that role time and again with perfect pitch, now how about that hunk?
As for Driver, she's looking at a pilot written by John Enbom who you may recognize as one of the writers from the unjustly-canceled workplace comedy, Party Down, and the cult hit, Veronica Mars. (Yay!) Free Agents looks kind of Office-y. It's a mocumentary style workplace comedy adapted from a British show. Instead of a boring old paper company, Agents takes place in a Hollywood talent agency and centers on two heart-broken co-workers (one's divorced, one just broke up with their fiance). This is Ari Gold territory, people. She's still in talks, but I'd like to see Driver return to television. She was interesting on her short-lived small screen venture, The Riches, despite her awkward American accent but would she really need to be American for this series? Come on, there are probably a ton of English imports at Hollywood talent agencies. Done.
