Is It Any Good?
This well-written dramatic comedy, which is subtitled in English, offers lots of fun moments, interesting relationships, and poignant moments that have universal appeal. What also makes the series entertaining is the appearance of celebrities playing her/him/their self in every episode. This includes a few celebs that Stateside viewers will recognize, like Sigourney Weaver and Juliette Binoche.
As the series progresses, there are a few cast changes, including the arrival new partner Hicham Janowski (Assaad Buab), and new storylines. But tensions are always high in the non-stop world of entertainment, and the partners and their staff often don't think twice about outsmarting each other as they vie for clients. At ASK there's never a dull moment, which is what makes Call My Agent! so entertaining.
