The British show Ten Percent, developed by John Morton, is Amazon Prime Video’s latest comedy offering, dropping its first episodes in the last week of April. The show is a remake of a hit French comedy series titled Call My Agent!, which starred French performers Camille Cottin, Fanny Sidney, Liliane Rovere, and many others. The plot of the show, according to Deadline, is as follows: “Ten Percent follows the small London talent agency of Nightingale Hart as it struggles to adapt in an ever-changing industry. After tragedy strikes the company, the personal and professional lives of the agents and assistants are thrown into turmoil. But their celebrity clients are in constant need of help, with issues ranging from marital problems to over-commitment to lingering method acting to stage fright. As the agents deal with the incessant demands of their jobs, they’ll also find themselves dealing with more off-screen drama than they ever expected.” Ten Percent has so far attracted positive reviews from critics and regular audiences alike.

Jack Davenport stars in Ten Percent as Jonathan Nightingale. The actor previously appeared in shows like This Life and Coupling. He also starred in the Pirates of the Caribbean series as James Norrington. More recently, Davenport worked on shows like White Famous, Why Women Kill, and The Morning Show. On the big screen, he recently performed in A United Kingdom, The Wilde Wedding, and The Stolen. In an interview with The List, Davenport talked about what drew him towards starring in Ten Percent, saying: “Yeah. Well, the answer’s quite simple — it’s John Morton. I’ve admired his work for a long time. When I got sent the script, I think maybe with the first two episodes … I’ve read a lot of scripts at this point in my life, and he’s in a very, very thin band of screenwriters who’s able to write dialogue that sounds entirely improvised, but which also has very precise comic beats to it. That’s very difficult to do.”
Lydia Leonard portrays Rebecca Fox in the new Amazon TV comedy series Ten Percent. The actress is best known for her role as Beatrice Ogilvy in the international spy drama Red Election. She previously appeared in shows like Flesh and Blood, Gentleman Jack, Absentia, Quacks, and Apple Tree Yard.

On TV, she played parts in Stella, Chewing Gum, EastEnders, Father Brown, and Elizabeth is Missing. In an interview with Express, Steed talked about what fans can expect from the Call My Agent! remake, candidly saying that the series begins in pretty much the same way as the show on which Ten Percent is based: “It begins with the introductions of the characters in a way that people who have seen the French series will, I think enjoy,” she continued. Just because of our versions and just because of John’s [Morton] writing as well.” “It’s so rooted in British comedy straight away,” she added. “It’s almost a bit like having those guys doing British stuff and then what happens is it kind of starts interweaves its way away from the French series and broadens it out. It then turns it into British theatre land which is an independent film and all the stuff that people who have seen the French series will enjoy, that it’s just so rooted in this culture.”
