While we’re suckers for a true crime doco and a cringe-worthy reality show (read: Outcry and Selling Sunset), nothing quite hits the bingefest sweet spot like a classic rom com. And when said rom com comes from Darren Star, the man behind Sex And The City and Younger, you just know you’re on to some solid gold viewing.
Enter Star’s latest creation and your new obsession, Emily In Paris.
The 10 episode series stars Lily Collins as Emily, an ambitious twenty-something marketing executive from Chicago, who unexpectedly lands her dream job in Paris when her company acquires a French luxury marketing company. Tasked with revamping the company’s 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 of course, navigating new romances.
And because this is a Darren Star special, he’s got his longtime collaborator Patricia Field on board to consult on costumes. So expect some Carrie Bradshaw realness on the wardrobe front.
Check out the trailer below. Warning: it will induce serious wanderlust.
Emily In Paris drops on Netflix on Friday 2 October, so consider your weekend sorted.
In the meantime, bless your ears with this month's best new podcasts.
