Paramount Network Orders Dramedy ‘Emily in Paris’ from Darren Star

Ten Half-Hour Episodes Ordered

Paramount Network has announced a full series order for “Emily in Paris” (working title) from Darren Star. The 10 episode, half-hour series will bookend a new Thursday dramedy night that launches in January with “First Wives Club,” from Tracy Oliver (“Girls Trip”), followed by Star’s returning “Younger” (which officially moves to Paramount Network for season six in the spring, followed by “Emily in Paris” in the summer).
 
“With Darren’s proven history as a hitmaker and Tracy Oliver’s fresh voice and perspective, we see a tremendous opportunity to build Thursday nights as destination viewing for fun female-driven dramedies,”
said Keith Cox, President of Development and Original Programming for Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT. “Younger is a huge hit with a passionate fanbase that’s the perfect centerpiece to this line-up.”
 
The logline: Star heads to the city of lights in “Emily in Paris” centered on Emily, a driven twenty-something American woman 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. Production will begin early next year in Paris. “Emily in Paris” is created, executive produced and written by Darren Star, with Tony Hernandez of JAX Media executive producing for Paramount Network.
