Pilot Scoop: Hank Azaria To Headline NBC Comedy Free Agents

Hank Azaria has been tapped to star in NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot Free Agents.

The project, based on the UK series of the same name, explores the attraction between on-the-rebound PR execs Alex (Azaria) and Helen (TBD).

Agents brings Azaria back to NBC, where he recurred on Friends and starred in the short-lived comedy Imagine That. Azaria also continues his voice work on The Simpsons and most recently headlined Showtime’s offbeat series Huff.

On the big screen, Azaria co-starred in Love and Other Drugs and can next be seen playing Gargamel in The Smurfs Movie.
