Free Agents is a crooked workplace/romantic sitcom from creator John Enbom and Emmy Award-winning director Todd Holland based on the cult U.K. series of the same name that explores the trials and tribulations of two public relations executives on the rebound.
Alex is newly divorced and can barely keep himself together while his co-worker Helen thinks she has it together but is obsessed with her deceased fiancé and actually is falling apart. Then a drunken Alex and Helen end up in bed together, and in the resulting sober confusion, Helen decides that they should only be friends.
Meanwhile Alex’s co-workers, Dan and Gregg, and Stephen fail in their attempts to help him get back out on the dating scene.
When Alex finally agrees to a date, Helen gets a little jealous, and he gets cold feet, so they end up back where they started — in a casual, intimate and beautifully awkward relationship.
