Mipcom: Cecile de France, Nathalie Baye and Audrey Fleurot Join Cast of ‘Call My Agent!’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Cecile De France

CANNES– ‘Call My Agent!,” the comedy mini-series marking French helmer Cedric Klapisch’s smallscreen debut, has attracted a top-notched cast of Gallic talent.

Cecile de France (“Hereafter,” pictured above), Nathalie Baye (“Catch Me If You Can”), Audrey Fleurot (“The Intouchables”), have joined the cast of show, which is being shopped by TF1 International at Mipcom. Cast also boasts Joey Starr (“Polisse”), Laura Smet (“Eden”), François Berléand (“Transporter, The Series”) and Julie Gayet (“Profilage”).

A Paris-set six-part mini-series, “Call My Agent!” was created by vet French talent agent Dominique Besnehard and Fanny Herrero.

The show centers around a tight-knit and dysfunctional team of Parisian talent agents who battle to get contracts for important clients, while juggling their personal lives. 

Penned by Klapisch, Lola Doillon and Antoine Garceau, “Call My Agent!” will go into production in November and has been commissioned by pubcaster France Televisions. It’s produced by Mon Voisin Production and Mother Production.

Although the ambitious series will be pure fiction, it will also feature cameos and play with real-life situations — in a similar spirit as “Entourage” — to portray the French film industry in a satirical way.

At Mipcom, TF1 is also selling “No Second Chance,” an action/thriller mini-series based on Harlan Coben’s eponymous bestseller.  The project marks the first French TV adaptation of a book by Coben, who will also showrun for the first time.
