Bent (NBC 2012, Amanda Peet, David Walton)

Bent is a sitcom with romantic comedy vibes about a womanizing, surfer dude contractor and his beautiful, no-nonsense, type-A client, who work together to remodel each other’s lives as they renovate her Venice, California home.

The recently divorced Alex (Amanda Peet) is a high-strung lawyer who is raising her young daughter, Charlie (Joey King, “Ramona and Beezus”) as a single mom.

She downsizes into a smaller house and hires charismatic Pete, a free-spirited ladies’ man and recovering gambling addict who desperately needs this gig with Alex to jumpstart his life — and prove that he is no longer a screw-up.
