Free Agents premiered on NBC on September 14, 2011. Alex is newly divorced and can barely keep himself together while his co-worker Helen thinks she has it together but is obsessed with her deceased fiance and actually is falling apart. Then a drunken Alex and Helen end up in bed together, and in the resulting sober confusion, Helen decides that they should only be friends. Meanwhile Alex's co-workers, Dan and Gregg, and Stephen fail in their attempts to help him get back out on the dating scene. When Alex finally agrees to a date, Helen gets a little jealous, and he gets cold feet, so they end up back where they started -- in a casual, intimate and beautifully awkward relationship.
