March 31, 2022 – New York, NY – Sundance Now has released the official trailer for the highly-anticipated British comedy series Ten Percent, from BAFTA winner John Morton (Twenty Twelve, W1A). AMC Networks’ streaming services Sundance Now and AMC+ will exclusively premiere the first two episodes on Friday, April 29 with one new episode following weekly on Fridays; an encore airing of the first episode will debut linearly on BBC America Sunday, May 1 with one episode weekly thereafter.
The Sundance Now Original Series, based on the original hit French series Call My Agent!, 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 duty calls – their celebrity clients are in constant need of help from their agents, with issues ranging from marital problems to over-commitment to lingering method acting to stage fright. As the Nightingale Hart agents deal with the incessant demands of their jobs, they’ll also find themselves dealing with more off-screen drama than they ever expected.
