Alex (Stephen Mangan) is sulking about Helen (Sharon Horgan) having sex with Doctor Two Scenes. Following a drunken late-night argument, Helen storms off to Colchester to have sex with the Doctor, while Stephen (Anthony Head) drags Alex to an up-market brothel where he introduces Alex to the glamorous madam, Wendy (Stephanie Beacham), who he is marrying on Saturday… with Alex as his Best Man. And Alex and Helen’s relationship issues finally come to a head at Stephen’s wedding.

From the team behind Spaced and Black Books comes Free Agents . This new six-part comedy stars Stephen Mangan ( Green Wing ), Sharon Horgan ( Pulling ) and Anthony Head ( Little Britain ). Alex (Mangan) is a talent agent suffering the emotional fall-out from his divorce. Helen (Horgan), his fellow agent, has the office opposite him and is also in pain; overcome with grief from a recent bereavement. Deluded Alex believes they are perfect for one another. Helen thinks quite the opposite. Yes, she’s slept with him once; okay, twice; but there’s no way she is doing it again…

A press pack, which includes series synopses and cast/ crew biographies, is available on the press website in Programme Info/ Future Highlights/ February.

An interview with Sharon Horgan will also be available from the afternoon of Thursday 30 January.
