More on Bent:
Bent is a romantic comedy 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) as a single mom. She downsizes into a smaller house and hires charismatic Pete (David Walton), 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.
Also starring are Margo Harshman and Jeffrey Tambor.
More on Best Friends Forever:
Best Friends Forever is a new comedy about old friends, new beginnings and awkward situations. Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham star as Jessica and Lennon, best friends who live on opposite sides of the country with the men in their lives. When Jessica is served divorce papers, Lennon convinces her to return home to Brooklyn and back into the apartment they used to share. Soon, the girls fall into old habits: movie marathons and late-night, girl-talk sessions — none of which is good news for Lennon’s live-in boyfriend, Joe (Luka Jones). Stephen Schneider and Daija Owens also star.
More on Betty White’s Off Their Rockers:
After a strong sneak-peek debut in January, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers takes senior stereotypes and blows them out of the water with a cast of sassy septuagenarians who are hip, sexy and ready to party. America’s favorite comedy sweetheart sends a fearless band of senior citizens to the streets to pull shockingly hilarious pranks on the younger generation in this outrageously funny “hidden camera” show. In the vein of Punk’d, the show delivers cleverly crafted comedic stunts, candid moments and priceless reactions captured by hidden cameras. Sassy seniors are on a mission, targeting unsuspecting young “marks” with their irreverent behavior.
