Call My Agent, the hit French show that released in 2021 on Netflix will be adapted for audiences in South Korea, Indonesia, the Middle East, Philippines, Malaysia and Poland. The show was already remade for the Indian audiences, however, it was not received too well. 

A UK remake with BAFTA award-winner John Morton as head writer and director of the first two episodes will soon launch on Amazon UK and Sundance Now in the US. In Italy, the remake is being produced by Mediawan-owned Palomar for Sky with German filmmaker Oliver Hirschbiegel on board.

The show is being adapted by Erik Matti in Indonesia. He is the critically acclaimed director of On The Job, and he will serve as a director and showrunner. Ordered by Disney+ Hotstar, the show will star Angel Locsin (The General's Daughter) and Edu Manzano (Marry Me, Marry You). According to reports in Variety, the eight-part show will kick off production in April or May.

Some of the other partners for this adaptation includes NBC in the Middle East, HBO Go in the Philippines, Astro in Malaysia and TVN in Poland. A South Korean partner is said to be unveiled at a later stage.

Originally titled Dix Pour Cent, the French hit series is about the personal and professional lives of a tight-knit but sometimes dysfunctional team of charismatic Parisian talent agents. It aired originally on France Televisions' flagship channel France 2 before Netflix picked up the show’s streaming rights.
