"This was a great idea, and I think we pulled it off in a light-hearted and realistic way," explains Jones. "We saw an awful lot of cast; there's a lot of talent out there! And we ended up with some great people. The Agency was a dream; really funny, very cool and totally trusting to work with. Great ideas were going back and forth.
