It’s official. I’m so thrilled to finally be able to share this news with you! I’m going to be starring in a new TV series called @EmilyinParis created by THE legendary #DarrenStar. Exploding with excitement as I will not only be starring in it, but this is also the first project I get to be a producer on! Can’t wait for you all to be part of this show every step of the way…
The series will be a dramatic comedy revolving around the life of Emily as she navigates the beautiful and foreign city as she is “tasked with bringing an American point of view to a venerable French marketing firm”. Emily will have to learn how to balance work, her social and love life, and adjusting to a new city all at once. Based on the synopsis, we are already hooked. The show is set to be released early next year, although no exact date has been set, and we are already counting down the days until we can see the first episode.
