The hit French sitcom Call My Agent is coming to India, thanks to Sameer Nair’s Applause Entertainment and Banijay Asia. The Indian adaptation of the coming-of-age dramedy, which began filming in November and finished early this year, is currently in post-production. Netflix has recently acquired the streaming rights to the show, according to Peepingmoon.
Under a lucrative arrangement with Applause Entertainment, the streaming giant has bought up this six-episode series and will begin streaming it early next year. Between 2015 and 2020, Netflix hosted the original French drama, which lasted four seasons.
Call My Agent is a workplace comedy that delves into the world of Hollywood talent management. The Indian version will be told through the eyes of four high-profile agents of Bollywood celebrities as they balance the glamour, egos, and demands of the industry alongside their own personal lives, while the original chronicled the lives and daily grind of four agents at a talent agency in Paris.
In this dramedy directed by Shaad Ali, Soni Razdan, Rajat Kapoor, Ahana Kumra, Ayush Mehra, Radhika Seth, and Suchitra Pillai, among others, play in the key parts.
The Indian adaptation of this hilarious and wicked drama series, written by Abbas and Hussain Dalal, promises to transport viewers into the life of their favourite Bollywood stars in an engaging, humorous, and exhilarating trip. Besides the cast, Bollywood stars Dia Mirza, Ali Fazal, Richa Chadha, Jackie Shroff, Lara Dutta, Shruti Hassan, and Farah Khan will appear in cameo roles as exaggerated versions of themselves in the show.
