LONDON, ENGLAND - DECEMBER 09:  Anthony Head attends the Woman's Own Children Of Courage Awards at Westminster Abbey on December 9, 2009 in London, England.

Anthony Head will reprise his role in the U.S. adaptation of Free Agents for NBC.

The single-camera romantic comedy pilot, from Universal Media studios, centers on the attraction between two quirky co-workers who are both on the rebound (one from a divorce, the other from the loss of a fiance).

Head, whose previous credits include Merlin, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the U.K. Agents original, will once again play the part of cocky boss Stephen. As of now, he plans to guest in the pilot with a series option. He will join previously cast Hank Azaria, Kathryn Hahn and Mo Mandel.

John Enbom (Party Down, Veronica Mars) will serve as the pilot's writer and executive producer with Kenton Allen and Karey Burke locked as executive producers. Todd Holland (Malcolm in the Middle, Sons of Tucson) is on board to executive produce and direct.

Head is repped by Gordon and French.
