If you’ve seen Netflix’s French comedy import Call My Agent!, then you’ve pretty much seen this sparkling British adaptation. Like the Americanized version of The Office, which also took some time to develop its own identity, this bears watching. Jack Davenport (The Morning Show) stars as the head of a posh London talent agency with a famous clientele, often played by actual stars mocking their own personas. In the opener, Boardwalk Empire’s Kelly Macdonald appears as herself, none too pleased when she learns her agent (Prasanna Puwanarajah) is trying to shield her from an unpleasant career setback. Naturally, the agents have plenty of personal baggage of their own to deal with. Episodes also air Sundays at 10/9c on BBC America.
