BBC America has acquired UK series, FREE AGENTS, the hit romantic comedy set in the office of a London talent agency starring Anthony Head (Buffy, Little Britain, The Invisibles), Stephen Mangan (Episodes, Green Wing) and Sharon Horgan (Pulling, Angelo’s).

Free Agents will premiere as part of the Ministry of Laughs comedy block, Saturday, October 1, 11.30p.m. ET/PT.

Show Description: Stephen (Head) is the brash, sex obsessed, go-find-me-more-clients boss who encourages open discussion of everyone’s sex life. He’s quick to offer advice and sarcasm to Alex (Mangan) who’s suffering the fallout of a divorce and wondering if he can ever date again. Meantime Alex has a one night stand with his colleague Helen (Horgan) who’s suffering through her own misery with the death of her fiancé. They are perfect for each other, according to Alex. According to Helen, he has got to be joking. There is no way she is having sex with Alex. Again. Not after the last two times they had sex. Absolutely not. The on-but-mostly-off romance between them might just have a future if they can ever shake off their pasts.

And if the show sounds familiar it’s because a remake of the series will air this Fall on NBC. You can see a first look here and the trailer here.
