Make the UK spin on Call My Agent! your next binge watch

Make the UK spin on Call My Agent! your next binge watch

The British take on the French series features an all-star cast, some A-list cameos and plenty of storylines based on real life industry anecdotes.

While fans of the original Call My Agent! rejoiced earlier this year when it was confirmed that the sitcom was being renewed for another season and a movie, the news of a UK adaptation is music to our ears.

Originally released back in 2015, Call My Agent! — or Dix Pour Cent — was an instant domestic hit in France, but it wasn’t until it was picked up by Netflix that it found its global audience. Quickly becoming a comfort show for many during the depths of the pandemic, the Amazon Prime Video spin off Ten Percent has some big shoes to fill.

The show, based on the memoirs of talent agent Dominique Besnehard, is set within the walls of a Parisian talent agency as four colleagues attempt to keep the show on the road after the sudden death of their boss. Much competition, melodrama and hilarity ensues, and all four seasons can currently be streamed on Netflix.

The plot of Ten Percent

As was the case of the French original, the UK version is based in fictional London talent agency Nightingale Hart as a roster of celebrity clients come and go episode by episode. Struggling to adapt in an ever-changing industry, the agents and their assistants’ lives are thrown into turmoil when tragedy strikes, but duty continues to call.

The agency’s celebrity clientele come with their own array of issues ranging from an excessive dedication to method acting, to incessant stage-fright at the opposite end of the spectrum. Amid all the on- and off-screen drama, there are plenty of laughs to be had.

Familiar faces

Written and directed by BATFA winning John Morton — the man behind comedy documentary series Twenty Twelve and BBC mockumentary W1A — the series will stay true to the heart of the original with an added British sensibility.

A star-studded affair by anyone’s standards, Ten Percent features cameos from the likes of Helena Bonham Carter, Dominic West, David Oyelowo and Phoebe Dynevor as they play fictionalised versions of themselves. Leading the cast is Emma Corrin of The Crown, Himesh Patel of Don’t Look Up, Supergirl‘s David Harewood and Clemence Poesy of Tenet.

There are a whole lot more A-listers and familiar faces set to pop up throughout the eight episode series. Ten Percent is available on Amazon Prime Video now.
