The romantic comedy series “Emily in Paris,” starring Lily Collins, will debut exclusively on Netflix this fall.
Created, written and executive produced by Darren Star (“Sex and the City”), the MTV Studios series follows Emily, an ambitious 20-something marketing executive from Chicago, who unexpectedly lands her dream job in Paris when her company acquires a French luxury marketing company. She is tasked with revamping the social media strategy. Emily’s new life in Paris is filled with adventures and surprising challenges as she juggles winning over her work colleagues, making friends and navigating new romances.
Collins will also serve as producer.
The series co-stars Ashley Park (Mean Girls on Broadway, “Tales of the City”) and also features Philippine Leroy Beaulieu (“Call My Agent!”), Lucas Bravo (Smart Ass), Samuel Arnold (Antony & Cleopatra), Camille Razat (The 15:17 to Paris) and Bruno Gouery (“Doc Martin”). Recurring cast members include Kate Walsh (“The Umbrella Academy”), William Abadie (Resident Evil: Extinction) and Arnaud Viard (Clara et Moi).
“MTV Studios and I couldn’t hope for a more perfect home for ‘Emily in Paris’ than Netflix. With their international reach, we are excited to share ‘Emily’ with audiences around the world,” Star said in a statement.
