The cast of guest stars is extraordinary: they will be playing themselves Stephen Accorsi, Paula Cortellesi, Matilda DeAngelis, Pierfrancesco Favino And Anna Ferzetti, Conrad Guzzanti And Paolo Sorrentino to give a hard time to the agents and their assistants, the latter played by Sarah Lazarus (Doc – In your hands, 18 gifts, I wanted to be a rock star), Francis Russo (The Brilliant Friend, A Classic Horror Story), Paola Buratto (Bang Bang Baby). And with Kaze (Dog years) as Sofia, the agency’s receptionist, ed Emmanuel Fanelli in that of one of the most “extravagant” actresses of the CMA.
