About the show
"Bent" follows Alex (Amanda Peet) and Pete (David Walton), two couples who find themselves attracted to each other's traits that would normally derail them from moving forward. Alex is a divorcee who works as a lawyer. She and her 8-year-old daughter Charlie (Joey King) live together trying to save money by moving into a smaller home. When she hires Pete as a contractor to remodel her kitchen,they share a connection that is attractive to both of them. Alex takes his recovering gambling addict and unapologetic womanizer things as a way of helping whereas he is not afraid to call out her flaws either.
Created by Tad Quill (Scrubs, Spin City), "Bent" is a new comedy that pushes the boundaries of what love can do for someone no matter how messed up their life is at the time and focuses on the success story of the class tale of "Boy meets Girl".
