The agents must deal with the sudden death of the company’s founder and bring the agency back from the brink when they realise how stark their financial problems are.
New clients come through the agency’s doors in each episode in need of help with a whole range of embarrassing problems.
This episodic format allows for a troupe of celebrity guest stars to play dramatised and more highly strung versions of themselves.
