The series depicts talent agents at the fictional agency ASK (Agence Samuel Kerr) and their relationships with their actor clients, who are real, mainly French, celebrities playing themselves.

It was initially planned that the show would end after its fourth season in 2020, but in April 2021 it was announced that the show would return with a 90-minute TV film followed by a fifth season.[1] Call My Agent! has been broadcast by ICI ARTV in Canada, RTS Un in Switzerland and is available worldwide on Netflix, except in Austria, Spain, Germany and Portugal.

Plot[edit]

Andréa, Mathias, Gabriel, and Arlette, agents in the talent agency ASK (French: Agence Samuel Kerr), juggle tricky situations and defend their vision of the business.

While struggling to save their agency after the sudden death of its founder, the four agents take us behind the scenes of the world of celebrity, where laughter, emotion, transgression and tears constantly collide.

Clients Nathalie Baye and Laura Smet, mother and daughter, face a dilemma when they're asked to appear in a Swedish director's next film, a claustrophobic two-hander set on a remote island and at sea. Both like the idea but believe that the rigours of spending several months of filming together 24 hours a day will jeopardise their relationship. They both take steps to be rejected for their parts and succeed in losing them. Meanwhile the agency is subject to a tax audit, carried out by Colette Brancillon, whom Andréa earlier rejected on a dating website. Mathias arranges for Camille to get an invitation to the César awards and an internship offer with a film producer but she turns it down in favour of training as an agent.

Their agents, Andréa and Gabriel, try to save the film from disaster and visit the set. An accident during filming results in Julie and Joey more than reconciling.
