Actress Amanda Peet has become a little more well known for her movie roles than her television roles but she decided to return to the small screen with the TV show Bent. Amanda has revealed her reasons for returning to the small screen, admitting that it had a lot to do with the character that she plays in Bent and how she relates to her.
Peet explained, "I like the idea that she's a single mum trying to keep it all together. I think most working mums have this sinking feeling that they're failing, so I related to that."
She added, "And I like the idea of an adult dating show that's sexy and not just for gags - that kind of romantic suspense where you're like, 'Are they going to have sex or not?' I love that she despises the fact that she's attracted to [a flirty contractor]."
Amanda continued, "I'm not sure yet [if it's realistic]… We definitely want to make people laugh. We have JB Smoove and Jeffrey Tambor so we want everyone to escape and laugh. But hopefully it's more on the realistic side."
Bent airs on ABC on Wednesdays.
