'The Devil Wears Prada' Fans Will Love Lily Collins' New Netflix Show
By the creator of Sex and the City, Emily in Paris follows a young woman from the Midwest of America named Emily (Collins) who moves the French capital for an exciting job opportunity.
Confronted with the bright lights of the city and all its sparkling, romantic splendour, the young marketing exec faces a culture clash and has to learn to adapt to her new life - and fast.
The 10-part series is created by Darren Star - best known as the creator of Sex and the City and 90201 - and is expected to hit screens in autumn.
Netflix says of the plot: "Emily, an ambitious twenty-something marketing executive from Chicago, 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."
This sounds like exactly the kind of exciting rom-com we need right now, and with Lily Collins at the helm (who is producing as well as starring), you just know we'll just be rooting for the heroine.

It's even giving us some Devil Wears Prada vibes (Andy Sachs has to learn to adapt to the cutthroat world of fashion after all) which is helped by the fact the Emily in Paris costumes are being designed by Patricia Field, who worked on the 2006 movie (as well as SATC), too.
In short, we predict there is going to be some seriously chic outfits happening. This is one for the fashionistas.
Starring alongside Lily is Ashley Park (Mean Girls on Broadway, Tales of the City), 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).
Supporting cast members include Kate Walsh (The Umbrella Academy), William Abadie (Resident Evil: Extinction) and Arnaud Viard (Clara et Moi).
The series was filmed entirely on location in Paris and throughout France so fans of the romantic city and French culture will surely love this.
Darren Star said: "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."
There's no trailer as of yet but we'll keep you posted!
