Netflix has revealed the Emily in Paris release date, teaser trailer and poster. The 10-episode romantic comedy series will premiere on the streaming service on October 2.
Lily Collins stars as Emily, an ambitious twenty-something marketing executive from Chicago, who unexpectedly lands her dream job in Paris when her company acquires a French luxury marketing company – and she is tasked with revamping their social media strategy.
Emily’s new life in Paris is filled with intoxicating adventures and surprising challenges as she juggles winning over her work colleagues, making friends, and navigating new romances.
The series co-stars Ashley Park (Mean Girls on Broadway, Tales of the City) along with 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).
The recurring cast members includes Kate Walsh (The Umbrella Academy), William Abadie (Resident Evil: Extinction) and Arnaud Viard (Clara et Moi).
Emily in Paris is produced by Darren Star Productions, Jax Media and MTV Studios. In addition to Star, Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns of Jax Media, and Andrew Fleming serve as executive producers with Lily Collins also serving as producer on the series.
Zoe Cassavetes, Andrew Fleming and Peter Lauer direct with Star’s longtime collaborator Patricia Field consulting on costume design with Marylin Fitoussi.
The series was previously going to debut on Paramount Network but moved to Netflix in July of 2020. Emily in Paris was filmed in Paris and throughout France.
“MTV Studios and I couldn’t hope for a more perfect home for Emily in Paris than Netflix,” said Darren Star when the switch was made. “With their international reach, we are excited to share Emily with audiences around the world.”
When Collins was announced as the star and producer, she said: “To be not only starring in a TV show created by Darren but also producing it with him… is a real ‘pinch me’ moment.
“All of Darren’s shows have deeply defined, greatly impacted, and undeniably helped me navigate my journey into womanhood. I couldn’t imagine a more inspiring city to be our Emily in Paris home than Paris. What an absolute dream project!”
“I’ve always been fascinated by the expat experience,” added Star. “I can’t think of anyone better to bring this beautiful world to life than Lily Collins.”
