Adam Kenwright of Kindred Partners and David Livingstone of Calamity Films have announced that Call My Agent! The Musical is in development, adapted from the French TV show. The new production hopes to launch in London in late 2024 prior to a Broadway run.

A French comedy-drama series, Call My Agent! (Dix pour cent) follows four agents at a talent agency as they struggle to keep it afloat following the death of its founder, while also navigating the perks and challenges of representing celebrities. 

Part of the original show's draw is a special guest star each week, a practice that Kenwright and Livingstone plan to continue with the new musical. The production plans to announce its creative team later this year.

In a statement, Kenwright shared, "We believe we can produce a brand-new musical that can deliver wit, comedy, and high drama with the romance of Paris." Livingstone's own statement expanded on that as he said, "The show has got to feel like it’s transformed into something different, highlighting issues of empowerment, the troubles that stardom can bring, and ensure the agents are at the heart of the story throughout.”

Michel Feller of Mon Voisin Productions, one of the production companies behind the TV show, said "The TV show has been so successful across the globe that Kindred Partners and Calamity Films need to be totally free to make the best show they can."

The TV show was created by Fanny Herrero and produced by Dominique Besnehard, Cédric Klapisch, Michel Feller, Aurelien Larger, and Harold Valentin. Originally launched in France in 2015, the show has since become the country's most successful original TV comedy and is now available in most countries via Netflix. It recently won the International Emmy for Best Comedy Series. An English-language version of the show called Ten Percent is set to launch later this year on Amazon Prime.
