Paramount Network has given a full series order for Emily in Paris (working title) from Darren Star.
Star, who is known for capturing the zeitgeist with series centered in New York (Sex and the City, Younger) and Los Angeles (Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place), heads to Paris in this new dramedy. The series centers on Emily, a driven twentysomething 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.
Star’s hit series Younger, meanwhile, officially moves to Paramount Network for season six in the spring. It had previously been airing on TV Land.
“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, the 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 lineup.”
“I am thrilled to be continuing my journey with Younger and now Emily in Paris on the Paramount Network,” said Star. “Keith and his entire team inspire me with their passion and enthusiasm.”
