Every day is like walking a tightrope for talent agents Mathias, Gabriel, Andrea and Arlette, striving to get contracts for prestigious clients like CĂ©cile de France, Nathalie Baye and other top actors. With a tight-knit team like a dysfunctional family, thereâ€™s just as much drama and laughter off-screen as on!
When naive young Camille, actually Mathiasâ€™ illegitimate daughter, shows up in Paris pushing for a job, she leads us into the life of the agency and behind the scenes of the wild world of stardom. In the wake of the agency bossâ€™ death, everyone has to pull together to stay afloat. It's one impossible situation after the next as the agents juggle their professional and personal lives on the fine line
between artistic integrity and paying the bills.
CĂ‰CILE DE FRANCE
In episode 1, CĂ©cile struggles to meet the challenges of preparing to play the lead in Quentin Tarantinoâ€™s next movie, revealing the fragility beneath her public image of atypical strength and energy. Little does she know she doesnâ€™t actually have the role. Her agent Gabriel is too petrified to tell her Tarantino has changed his mind â€“ and that itâ€™s an â€śage problem.â€ť But how long can he keep it a secret?
LINE RENAUD & FRANĂ‡OISE FABIAN
In episode 2, FranĂ§oise Fabian, slated to play the lead in an audacious young directorâ€™s film, pulls out at the last minute. Gabriel convinces Line Renaud to replace her, sparking an old rivalry between the two stars that dates back to their school days. FranĂ§oise uses her characteristic glamour and finesse to get the role back, but Line holds on tenaciously with her irresistible frankness and warmth. Itâ€™s a war that canâ€™t be won! How can the agents save the film and keep the agencyâ€™s reputation from being torn to shreds by the actress left behind?
NATHALIE BAYE & LAURA SMET
In episode 3, Nathalie Baye and daughter Laura Smet, chosen for the leads in a Swedish drama, are excited about sharing the big screen for the first time â€“ until they learn theyâ€™ll have to spend three months shooting in close quarters on a cold, remote little Swedish island. They both want out, but neither of them has the courage to admit it to the other. Instead, each goes to great lengths to try to get herself fired. Their hilarious antics donâ€™t fool the director â€“ but will the actresses ever stop acting and face the moment of truth?
In episode 4, Audrey Fleurot, saddled with debt and the responsibilities of raising a toddler and a newborn baby, is forced back to work when a fiscal inspector demands immediate payment of two years back taxes. Her agent Mathias gets her a role: but can she handle playing a pole dancing stripper? The juggling act between maternal love and professional obligations pushes Audrey and the whole agency to hysterical extremes.
JULIE GAYET & JOEYSTARR
In episode 5, Julie Gayet plays an aristocrat in a period film who has an affair with her servant, played by infamous bad boy JoeyStarr. Despite their conflicting characters and work methods, unexpected romantic sparks fly â€“ on screen and off! But Julieâ€™s sensitive nature canâ€™t handle Joey Starrâ€™s brutal ways. Can the beauty tame the beast?
In episode 6, FranĂ§oisâ€™ capacity for self-derision is put to the test when he accepts the title role in a stage production of Don Juan portrayed like a kitsch 80â€™s ladiesâ€™ man. When the young hip director insists he do a ludicrous jacuzzi scene, he walks out. But actually, itâ€™s to hide his deep dark secret: he canâ€™t swim! His agent Andrea negotiates compromises, but things just get worse. The truth has got to come out â€“ but how?
