Golden Globe-nominated actress Lily Collins (Rules Don’t Apply) has signed on for the leading star in Paramount Network’s upcoming comedy-drama series Emily in Paris. Created and written by Sex and the City creator Darren Star, the half-hour long series is set to make its debut next year on the network.

“I’ve always been fascinated by the expat experience,” Star said in a press release. “I can’t think of anyone better to bring this beautiful world to life than Lily Collins.”

Paramount Network’s Keith Cox added. “Lily possesses unparalleled depth to bring the necessary humor, heart and drama to this exciting role. We can’t wait to get started with her.”

Emily in Paris follows the story of Emily (Collins) a driven twenty-something from the Midwest who moves to Paris for an unexpected job opportunity. Tasked with bringing an American point of view to a venerable French marketing firm, cultures clash as she adjusts to the challenges of life in a foreign city, while juggling her career, new friendships and love life.

“To be not only starring in a TV show created by Darren but also producing it with him and the Paramount Network is a real ‘pinch me’ moment,” Collins said. “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!”

The series will be executive produced by Star with Collins serving as the producer. Production is scheduled to begin in Paris later this year. The series will also premiere globally through Paramount Network’s international channels.
