What is Emily In Paris about?

Emily in Paris

As Netflix's synopsis puts it: "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."

The drama is written, created and executive-produced by Darren Star, best known for creating the TV shows Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place, and Sex and the City.

Emily in Paris also features costume designs by the legendary Patricia Field, who is famous for her work on Sex and the City, Ugly Betty, and The Devil Wears Prada, and the Emily in Paris soundtrack is full of upbeat French tracks – from classics like Edith Piaf’s La Vie en Rose, to modern indie songs from the likes of pop group Husbands’ Dream.
