AMANDA PEET & JEFFREY TAMBOR TELL ALL ABOUT BEING “BENT”… NOT BROKEN
Bent, a new romantic comedy premiering tonight at 9/8c on NBC, is about a womanizing contractor named Pete (David Walton, Perfect Couples) and his beautiful, no-nonsense, type-A client Alex (Amanda Peet, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), who work together to remodel each other’s lives as they renovate her Venice, California home.
On the surface, Alex and Pete could not be more opposite. The recently divorced Alex is a hard-working, high-strung lawyer who is raising her 10-year-old daughter, Charlie (Joey King, Ramona and Beezus), as a single mom following her husband’s incarceration for insider trading. However, Alex quickly realizes that she has met her match in Pete who will not only tear apart her kitchen, but also transform her worldview in the process.
Adding to the charm of Alex’s family life is her wild younger sister, Screwsie (Margo Harshman, Sorority Row), who unfortunately for Alex, seems to be similar in nature as Pete. Meanwhile, Pete’s home life includes his narcissistic, live-in father, Walt (Jeffrey Tambor, Arrested Development), an unemployed actor who still yearns to get back in the game.
Hear from Amanda Peet and Jeffrey Tambor on what they think about the chemistry of the show, the significance of the title “Bent,” and why opposites attract. Take a look here:
