Call My Agent!: Cécile
January 26, 2017 1:19 PM - Season 1, Episode 1 - Subscribe

At a top Paris talent firm, Agence Samuel Kerr (ASK), agents scramble to keep their star clients happy and their business afloat. Andréa fires her assistant and hires a neophyte on a trial basis; Gabriel searches for a way to break bad news to aging Belgian star Cécile de France; and Mathias cleans up his partners' professional messes with aplomb, but can't seem to shake a past indiscretion.

This show is a lot of fun—just the right mix of trashy and sophisticated. The principals are all a bit awful in different ways but are a bit lovable as well. Each episode has real French stars playing themselves, or at least characters somewhat similar to themselves.

It's a tad bit predictable, but that might be just because I've been watching television for nearly forty years. Certainly its predictability doesn't make me like it any less.

Good idea to watch a french tv series. Tx for the suggestion.
I'll report back when I've seen some episodes.

Ha, that was great. Tx so much!
So nice to watch a non-US reality for a change.

I loved this series.

As a bonus, for those with mid-level French - you can now turn on closed-captions in French on Netflix for a lot of Canal+ shows. This is super helpful for those of us who can read the language, but can't understand a word in tv or movies.

I'm absolutely sure the cast must have loved making this. And, for anybody who has seen umpteen shows about agents set in Hollywood - then it is fun to see on set in Paris. Will be watching the rest.
