Alex (Stephen Mangan) is a talent agent suffering all the sadness and pain of divorce. In the next office to him is Helen (Sharon Horgan) a talent agent suffering all the sadness and pain of bereavement. They’re perfect for each other. According to Alex. According to Helen, he has got to be bloody joking. There’s no way she’s having sex with Alex. Again. Not after the last two times they had sex. Absolutely not.
Set in a world where everyone – the agents, the agents’ boss (Anthony Head), the agents’ clients, the agents’ friends and relations and ex-girlfriends and accountants – are all as bizarrely screwed up as Alex and Helen – Free Agents is a dark, poignant comedy, an on-but-mostly-off romance about a couple who might just have a future if they can ever shake off their past(s).
“Acerbic, rude and very funny, Free Agents is going to be comedy gold”
“Free Agents is very funny – laugh-out-loud funny in fact”
(Mail On Sunday)
“A refreshingly smart, downbeat comedy”
