Darren Star’s half-hour comedy series Emily in Paris has landed at Netflix. The series was originally meant to air on Paramount Network, however that network’s switching up their lineup to concentrate on adult dramas.

The first season of Emily In Paris consists of 10 episodes shot in Paris and elsewhere in France.

“MTV Studios and I couldn’t hope for a more perfect home for Emily In Paris than Netflix. With their international reach, we are excited to share Emily with audiences around the world,” said Darren Star (Younger) about the series’ new home.

Star created the romantic comedy and serves as writer and executive producer. Tony Hernandez, Lilly Burns, and Andrew Fleming also executive produce.
