Join Darren Star and cast Lily Collins, Philippine Leroy Beaulieu, Ashley Park and Lucas Bravo for a behind-the-scenes conversation about Netflix’s hit rom-com series Emily in Paris. Creator, writer and executive producer Star (Sex in the City, Younger) has the Midas touch in writing strong female characters. In Emily in Paris, his charming lead is a 20-something American working at a chic Parisian luxury goods firm less than welcoming to a bold young woman who doesn’t speak the language. Emily Instagrams her way through the pleasures of Paris — fabulous clothes, dreamy French men, orgasmic croissants — all while deflecting the displeasure of the locals and a boss who can’t stand her. Star and cast talk with journalist Ruthie Fierberg about the show’s irresistible escapist appeal through the confines of a pandemic, its hilarious embrace of Parisian stereotypes, those incredible clothes, and what’s in store for season two in a series as delectable as a Ladurée macaron.
