Season 1

Bent is an American romantic comedy television series created by Tad Quill which follows a recently divorced, no-nonsense lawyer and the irresponsible general contractor hired to remodel her kitchen who is trying to rebuild his contracting career after ruining it with his gambling addiction and promiscuous ways.

The series aired in the USA on NBC from 21 March to 4 April, 2012. There are six half-hour episodes in the series.

Bent premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Saturday 29 September 2012, at 22h30. New episodes broadcast in a double bill, weekly.

Synopsis

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.

On the surface, Alex (Amanda Peet) and Pete (David Walton) could not be more different. The recently divorced Alex is a hard-working, high-strung lawyer who is raising her 10-year-old daughter, Charlie (Joey King), as a single mom following her husband's incarceration for insider trading.

Unwilling to let anything get in her way, she downsizes into a smaller house and hires the 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.

Upon hiring him, Alex quickly realizes that she has met her match in Pete, who - along with his motley construction crew - will not only tear apart her kitchen, but also transform her world view in the process.

Adding to the charm of Alex's family life is her wild younger sister, Screwsie (Margo Harshman), who unfortunately for Alex, seems to be cut from the same reckless cloth as Pete.

Meanwhile, Pete's home life includes his narcissistic, live-in father, Walt (Jeffrey Tambor), a perpetually unemployed actor who still yearns to get back in the game.
