Lily Collins has begun work on her latest project, a new series titled Emily in Paris!
The actress took to her Instagram page on Monday (August 12) to share her excitement about the new project, sharing a photo of her with the show’s script in Paris, France.
“@EmilyinParis officially begins shooting today and I can’t tell you how excited I am to take all of you guys on this journey with me!” Lily captioned the photo. “What an adventure. C’est parti!…#EmilyinParis”
Lily was announced as the star of the new series back in April, when it was revealed that she will both produce and star in the title role of the Darren Star-created series.
The half-hour dramedy will focus on Emily, “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.”
Upon the announcement of her new role, Lily also commented on the role, saying:
“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,” she 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!”
Emily in Paris is slated to premiere on Paramount Network in 2020.
