Twentysomething (?) Chicagoan Emily Cooper moves to the titular Paris to bring her certain je ne sais quoi to a French marketing firm. Once there, she makes a new life for herself full of drama, friends, love, and a wide range of fashions that may or may not look ridiculous.

Lily Collins stars as Emily in the Netflix series, which is quite popular and beloved despite (or because of) how dumb it is. Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, Lucas Bravo, Kate Walsh, Camille Razar, and more also star.
