Call my agent, behind the scenes in Paris…

Through the daily life of the stars and their agents, discover ten must-see places in the capital discovered in Call my agent and present in our Paris guide of the 1000 cult places of films, series, music, comics and novels.

ASK agency

If the address of the artistic agency ASK is announced at 149, rue Saint-Honoré, not far from the Louvre Museum, the scenes were actually shot in studios in Aubervilliers (93). Originally, Call my agent was to be called 10, avenue George-V, in reference to the former premises of the famous Artmedia agency. However, since this title would not appeal to the general public, it was decided to name the series after the amount of money that the agent receives from the artists he handles. Artmedia has handled the interests of many artists including Romy Schneider, Yves Montand, Gérard Depardieu, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Catherine Deneuve. In the series, an allusion is made to him since ASK’s rival agency is called Starmedia.

Andrea’s apartment

The apartment of Andréa Martel (Camille Cottin), an art agent for the ASK agency, is located in this building built in 1650. It is also in this street that Napoleon Bonaparte lived in 1790. In those days, houses did not have numbers… When he came to power, the emperor decided to change this by decree in 1805 according to a system based on the Seine: for the streets parallel to it, the numbers start at the entrance of the street upstream of the river and then follow an increasing order in the direction of the watercourse by placing the even numbers on the right and the odd ones on the left. For streets perpendicular or oblique to the river, the numbering begins at the entrance closest to the water.

Le Grand Colbert

Camille (Fanny Sidney) comes to lunch with her mother (Isabelle Candelier) in this restaurant and invites Mathias (Thibault de Montalembert) for coffee. It gets a little awkward when his wife joins them. The façade of this famous brewery founded in 1900 is listed in the register of historical monuments. The interior is equally remarkable, with its large room with six-metre high walls, carved pilasters, Pompeian style paintings and mosaics on the floor.

Schoot conduite

The name of the driving school in which Norman Thavaud is enrolled has been slightly modified for the series, becoming “Schoot conduite”. Its address is announced rue Bassoff, but Paris does not have any lanes with such a name. It’s a nod to Eric Bassoff, the series’ post-production director.

Ministry of Economy and Finance

It is in front of the famous building of the Ministry of Economy and Finance in Bercy that Andrea (Camille Cottin) meets up with one of her exes, Clément (Robert Plagnol), to ask him for a favor following an imminent tax audit at the Agency, but also that Mathias (Thibault de Montalembert) accompanies Audrey Fleurot for her tax stories. All episodes of the series are inspired by real events. The actors and actresses involved do not appear on screen, but Dominique Besnehard, one of the creators of the series and ex-agent to the stars, confirms that each of the stories did indeed happen, including the episode on the tax center. “I happened to accompany Béatrice Dalle to settle her tax affairs at Bercy. The guy who received us asked Beatrice: ‘What do you have?’ She had this response worthy of Arletty: ‘Everything is in my bag!“.
