JAM2000 Agency

JAM2000 Agency was founded in 2008 by Judy McPhee, a former professional comedienne, dancer and choreographer and winner of ITV’s New Faces in 1978.

Today JAM2000 Agency is first choice agency for many of the UK’s leading TV and film producers and directors, making it one of the busiest agencies in the UK. Credits include Call the Midwife, Made in Chelsea, Silent Witness, Dickensian, Horrible Histories, River, James Bond Skyfall, The Lady in the Van and Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie and commercials for John Lewis, Talk Talk, Tesco and Morrisons …to name just some.

We offer a fully integrated service – sourcing, casting, licensing, transporting, chaperoning and tutoring young performers. Conveniently situated 15 miles from Central London, JAM2000 Agency has earned a reputation for being a fast, friendly and efficient agency – open seven days a week, usually till late!

Judy and the team are famous for going that extra mile for clients, making their jobs less pressured and hassle free.

"JAM2000 are a production company’s dream,” says Adam Jenkins, 1st AD on leading productions that include Horrible Histories and The Inbetweeners“I have been using JAM2000 on every production for the past seven years and cannot stress how good they are."

“They have always been able to meet the brief no matter how difficult or time pressured. I recommend JAM2000 whole heartedly!" says Tim Wood, 2nd Assistant Director, Silent Witness.

JAM2000 Agency is on first name terms with many local licensing authorities who go out of their way to ensure our performers are licensed in time.

The modern and clean facilities at JAM2000 headquarters, a stone's throw from Ruislip Manor station on the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines and 5 minutes’ drive from the A40, also provide the ideal venue for auditioning, casting and rehearsing.

Alternatively, JAM2000 Agency carries out castings for clients – most JAM2000 Agency performers live locally and are used to coming in at a moment’s notice for castings, which are filmed and sent down the line to clients.

Many JAM2000 Agency performers attend JAM2000 performing arts classes and are well-trained in acting and dancing, making them ideal for casted, featured and supporting artiste parts. Standards of performance and discipline are high.  JAM2000 performers are up there with the best.

Russell Dewulff Booth, Assistant Director on Episodes, agrees: “JAM2000 has a wealth of talented young performers who have always been, bright, well behaved and delivered on camera.”

"Just to let you know that Thomas and I had a wonderful time at the premiere of the feature film Swallows & Amazons! The film is beautiful.  I wanted to thank you because it was you that set all this in motion for Thomas and I'm really glad we have had this wonderful experience of being involved in a film."

"During the filming of Call the Midwife, JAM2000 has literally proved to be a massive weight off my mind. Requiring lots of babies and children of all ages, with last minute schedule changes, can be a huge cause of stress in my job role, but JAM2000 were always more than helpful. They were not only able to supply the kids, push through the licensing but also provide qualified and reliable chaperones. There's always someone on the end of the phone, casting photos quickly available, emails answered promptly etc. and I soon found myself worrying much less, safe in the knowledge that JAM2000 had it all covered! I would certainly use JAM2000 again and again and again and again..."
