4 Reasons Why Free Agents Is an Anti-Romantic Comedy

Free Agents, Hank Azaria and Kathryn Hahn

Free Agents starts where most romantic comedies end — in bed.

In the opening moments of the new NBC sitcom — based on the British series of the same name — co-workers Alex (Hank Azaria), recently divorced, and Helen (Kathryn Hahn), whose fiancé died, are struggling with postcoital etiquette after their one-night stand, which, to hear the stars tell it, lets you know right off the bat that this is not your average love story.

In fact, they call it an "anti-romantic comedy." Oh, don't worry, there'll be flirting, dates and hook-ups, but at its core, Free Agents will not have you swooning over "aww"-worthy moments. Here's why:

Mega Buzz: Tiva Time on NCIS? Plus: Fringe's Future and Stabler's SVU Exit

Michael Weatherly, Joshua Jackson, Christopher Meloni

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Please tell me E.J. Barrett's NCIS return will be short-lived. I need Tiva! — Hanna
ADAM:
Let's let Michael Weatherly offer his take. "There's a new wrinkle in [Tony and E.J.'s] relationship, and I would say it is somewhat troubling," he says. "I think Tony questions a lot of things about her, and I don't think there's any going back to their initial blinky-blinky, lovey-dovey plot." But before your little 'shipper heart explodes, that doesn't necessarily guarantee loads of Tony-Ziva goodness. "Tony ultimately has to lean on himself. He has to figure some of his own stuff out," Weatherly says. "That might make him more able down the road to approach a relationship with Ziva."

Will Fringe go back to the future this season? —Barry
NATALIE:
Yes, but it won't be the same future we saw in the finale. "The future that we saw in 2026... read more

Mad Love, Judy Greer

CBS's new romantic comedy, Mad Love, lost cast member Lizzy Caplan before the series was picked up, but executive producer Matt Tarses says her replacement, Judy Greer, is a much better fit.

Caplan signed on for a role in the pilot. Due to her commitments on the since-canceled Starz series Party Down, Caplan declined to join Mad Love as a series regular.

Check out the rest of today's news

"Lizzy Caplan did [the pilot] as a guest role for us; she was never going to do it for the series," Tarses said Friday at the Television Critics Association winter previews. "The part, to be honest, was a little more of a part that fits... read more
