"Call My Agent"
Mediawan, Elefantec Global and UnbeliEVAble Entertainment have teamed up to co-produce the Spanish speaking Americas version of the Emmy Award-winning international hit series “Call My Agent.” This partnership will bring this global property to life with a fresh take that maintains the humor and satirical wit fans have come to love. Together, these groups will deploy this emblematic brand for the first time in Hispanic America, in key territories of the audiovisual market.
In addition to lending her producing prowess as the CEO of UnbeliEVAble Entertainment, Eva Longoria will also direct the first two episodes. A director with over a decade of experience, Longoria recently premiered her feature directorial debut “Flamin’ Hot” at the SXSW Film & TV Festival, where it was met with rave reviews and named the Audience Award winner.
The unique concept of “Call My Agent,” which illustrates the hectic life of celebrity agents, led to the international success of the series, which was broadcast on France Télévisions for four seasons with record audiences, and then acquired by Netflix. The original series was produced by Mon Voisin Productions (Mediawan Group) and Mother Production, and has already been successfully adapted abroad, most recently in Italy by Palomar (Mediawan Group).
"Joining forces with Eva Longoria and Pepe Baston to take 'Call My Agent' to Latin America is a unique opportunity. Their talent and know-how combined with their international renown guarantee an innovative and premium adaptation of this series, a real funny and moving gem that the French creators were able to bring to life and which has since been travelling to audiences worldwide," said Pierre-Antoine Capton, CEO of Mediawan.
Pepe Baston, CEO of Elefantec Global, added: “We are excited to bring ‘Call my Agent’ to the Spanish-speaking American market, and thrilled to be doing so with the creators at Mediawan, and UnbeliEVAble Entertainment. Made with Latin flavor for a global audience, we are sure this iteration will find success and viewers worldwide.”
Eva Longoria, CEO & Founder of UnbeliEVAble Entertainment, concluded: “Like so many people around the globe, I have been a huge fan of the original series since it first premiered. I am so excited to partner with Mediawan and Elefantec Global to bring one of the greatest properties that gives a witty and satirical look behind the curtain of the entertainment industry for the Spanish speaking American market.”
