Anthony Head has revealed that he is looking forward to reprising his original role on NBC's remake of the UK comedy Free Agents.

The actor played sex-obsessed PR boss Stephen in the Channel 4 series and will also appear in the new NBC version.

Head told Digital Spy: "The character is basically very un-PC. There's nothing right about him. he's extremely rude and extremely inappropriate in all ways."

He added: "It is going to be [on] NBC, mainstream TV, so the degree [to which] we can play that card [will] be interesting."

The former Buffy star also suggested that the extended length of the US television season could mean that NBC's Free Agents has "shallower" story arcs than the original.

Head explained: "The first season's 13 eps, but [with] the British one, the first season was six episodes long. So... the arcs have got to be shallower... and the basic premise... has got to span a much greater story arc. Hopefully that'll mean that there's more play for the other [characters]."

Free Agents will air at 8.30/7.30c on Wednesdays on NBC in the fall.
