Call My Agent Sneak Peek – 10 Pour cent – Season 4


“Call My Agent!” aka Dix Pour Cent created by Fanny Herrero made its debut in 2015 on France 2 and quickly became a global sensation when it was picked up by Netflix. This is one of my favorite French Netflix Series.

For the last 3 seasons the team of tight-knit Parisian talent agents and their assistants at ASK Talent Agency have taken us along for the ride behind the scene as we get intimately and endearingly involved in their professional and private lives. We watch as they maneuver and work with their talents which just happen to be some of France’s biggest stars in the film industry such as: Cécile de France, Isabelle Huppert, Nathalie Baye, Line Renaud, Audrey Fleurot, Jean Dujardin, Isabelle Adjani and so many more.

A new long-awaited Call My Agent! aka 10 Pour Cent season was released October 21, 2020 in France and Netflix has renewed the show for a 4th  season which is expected to release soon sometime in 2020. To date, there are 6 episodes entitled: Charlotte, Franck, José, Sandrine, Sigourney, and Jean with our favorite cast members.

ASK Talent Agency with Camille Cottin, Thibault de Montalembert, Grégory Montel, Liliane Rovère, Laure Calamy, Asaad Bouab, Fanny Sidney, Stefi Selma, and Nicolas Maury.

Sigourney Weaver is the first International actress who said oui without hesitation and without even reading the script. In a recent Variety interview she tells why she loves this series: “It’s a love letter to the business, to the relationships between actors, artists; it goes behind the scenes to show the problems of actors in dealing with different directors and mood scenes cosmetic surgery and all these situations that come up in a very humorous way that no other show does; it has a lot of affection for the business and for the job of being an agent. The agents in the series are very passionate about their clients. It’s very inspiring.”

In this new season Andréa will assume the role of ASK agency director and will hire a new senior talent manager from Star Media for the better or for the worst.

Get the popcorn ready for Season 4 of Call My Agent aka 10 Pour Cent!

Emily in Paris on Netflix (2020)


This lighthearted à l’eau de rose  American comedy is a series you might  love to hate.  Brimming over with  heavy  clichés and  the most obnoxious French stereotypes Emily in Paris  is  more of a parody and  fantasy.    Still Emily in Paris is charming and one of my Favorite French Netflix Series. Emily Cooper is suddenly catapulted from Chicago to Paris to act as a young marketing executive in an established French marketing agency.   Oblivious to the French culture and the language,  Emily will forge her way in designer pumps  or talons à aiguilles and fashion style ( in some scenes a bit à la Audrey Hepburn) and quickly create a social media buzz.

Portraying  an  ambitious, overzealous, independent American  young woman with an endearing side , we casually follow Emily’s adventures in her new life in the city of light. The episodes are short and a nostalgic way to spend a few hours in a make-believe Paris with likeable characters especially the very French work colleagues, Sylvie the boss, as well as Emily’s love interests as we get caught up in the predictable storyline.

Emily in Paris (2020), the new series from the creator of Sex and the City, Darren Star, premiered October 2 on Netflix Starring: Lily Collins, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, Ashley Park, Lucas Bravo, CAmille Razat,
