Lily Collins is one of the most underrated actors working today. Sure, she’s appeared in a number of major films, such as “Mirror Mirror,” “Rules Don’t Apply,” and “Okja.” Recently, she’s had performances in “Tolkien,” “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” and “Inheritance.” But none of the films have really been able to show off her charm. Perhaps, the Netflix series, “Emily in Paris,” will do just that.
As seen in the trailer for “Emily in Paris,” Collins plays a young marketing executive that jumps at the opportunity to travel to Paris to become a social media person for her company. And while she’s in Paris, she experiences all that the beloved, iconic city has to offer.
The ensemble cast includes Lily Collins, as mentioned, alongside Ashley Park (“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”), Bruno Gouery (“Doc Martin”), Kate Walsh (“The Umbrella Academy”), William Abadie (“Resident Evil: Extinction”), and Arnaud Viard (“Clara et Moi”).
Darren Starr is the creator-writer-producer on “Emily in Paris.” That name should sound familiar for those that enjoy a good soapy series. In addition to this show, he’s previously created series such as “Beverly Hills 90210,” “Melrose Place,” and “Sex and the City.” So yeah, there’s definitely some serious credibility in the filmography of Starr.
“Emily in Paris” is set to debut on Netflix on October 2. You can watch the full trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis:
Lily Collins stars as 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.
