Ten Percent will definitely appeal if you loved the French Netflix series Call My Agent! (and quite frankly who didn’t?). Ten Percent is the English language remake that is on its way to Prime Video this spring. Renamed Ten Percent, which is the usual cut taken by an agent on any acting job, the new title is also in line with the French version’s original title Dix Pour Cent.
The comedy is written by BAFTA-award winner John Morton (Twenty Twelve, W1A) and the series has lined up a whole host of stars, including Jack Davenport, Lydia Leonard, Maggie Steed and Jim Broadbent. But, as with its Parisian forerunner, it’s the cameos we’re all waiting for, with big names such as Emma Corrin (The Crown), Helena Bonham Carter, David Harewood, Olivia Williams and David Oyelowo set to rock up. There are even former EastEnders actors lined up to appear.
Here's everything you need to know about eight-part Prime Video comedy Ten Percent season 1...

Ten Percent plot
Ten Percent follows the same basic premise as Netflix show Call My Agent!, focussing on a top London talent agency as its staff struggle to please their demanding celebrity clientele while keeping their business afloat after the sudden death of their founder. Outside the office they must also navigate their own chaotic personal lives. The British remake promises to incorporate a sense of ‘British sensibility’ as well as looking at ‘transatlantic industry relationships’ and the British class system.
Ten Percent cast
When we say Ten Percent has a star-studded cast, we really mean it! The series has Jack Davenport (The Pirates of the Caribbean), Lydia Leonard (Gentleman Jack), Prasanna Puwanarajah (Doctor Foster) and The Duke and Harry Potter star Jim Broadbent playing some of the burnt-out talent agents fighting to keep the agency afloat.
Tim McInnerny, Natasha Little, Hiftu Quasem, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Rebecca Humphries, Harry Trevaldwyn, Edward Bluemel and Eleonore Arnaud also star. Former EastEnders stars Maggie Steed and Himesh Patel also appear.

Jack Davenport on playing Jonathan Nightingale in Ten Percent
Jack Davenport told us: "I took my own agent out for a long lunch, and took copious notes! He said one thing which really stayed with me: the hardest thing is that you’re either Father Christmas or the Grim Reaper, and there’s nothing in between. All day long, you’re possibly changing somebody’s life forever, or breaking their heart. That’s quite complex emotional territory."

I'm a huge fan of television so I really have found the perfect job, as I've been writing about TV shows, films and interviewing major television, film and sports stars for over 25 years. I'm currently TV Content Director on What's On TV, TV Times, TV and Satellite Week magazines plus Whattowatch.com. I previously worked on Woman and Woman's Own in the 1990s. Outside of work I swim every morning, support Charlton Athletic football club and get nostalgic about TV shows Cagney & Lacey, I Claudius, Dallas and Tenko. I'm totally on top of everything good coming up too.
