Filming is underway in London on the English-language remake of the popular French comedy series Call My Agent!

Bafta-winning John Morton, creator of BBC series Twenty Twelve and W1A, will write and direct the first two episodes of the series and serve as executive producer.

Amazon Prime Video has acquired UK-Ireland rights to the series, which has added key cameo roles to its cast. Kelly Macdonald, Helena Bonham Carter and Olivia Williams have all been confirmed to appear in the series.

They will join previously-announced series regulars Jack Davenport, Lydia Leonard, Maggie Steed, Prasanna Puwanarajah, Hiftu Quasem, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Rebecca Humphries, Harry Trevaldwyn, Tim McInnerny, Natasha Little, Edward Bluemel, Eleonore Arnaud and Jim Broadbent.

The adaptation stays close to the French series created by Fanny Herrero, where a Parisian talent agency’s employees must scramble to keep their star clients happy and their business afloat after the sudden death of their founder. Morton will also introduce a British sensibility and new storylines to the series.

Executive producers are David Davoli, Samantha Thomas, Steven Thibault, and Aaron L. Gilbert for BRON Studios; Christian Baute, Frank Calderon, and Laurence Lenica for Headline Pictures; and David Tanner from Turbine Studios. Sarah Curtis is a producer and Ben Rimmer is a co-producer, with BRON’s Emma Fleischer on as supervising producer.

The original Call My Agent! was broadcast on French network France 2 in 2015, before finding global success via Netflix.
