Amanda Peet Cast in BENT

Amanda Peet

Amanda Peet is coming back to the NBC family. TVLine.com reports that the actress has been cast in NBC’s BENT.

The new series, described as a single camera romantic comedy, is already starting out on the right foot. Not only has it landed the former Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip star, but it is also coming from former Scrubs producer Tad Quill.

Sounds like a winning combination already.

In the show, Peet will play a recently-divorced single mom who’s fighting an intense attraction to her studly contractor.

There’s no news yet on who’s playing the object of her superficial attraction, but I know I for one am dying to see who they cast in the role.
