Ashley Park joins Lily Collins in Paramount Network’s Emily in Paris
According to Deadline, Ashley Park has joined Lily Collins in Paramount Network’s Emily in Paris, the half-hour dramedy created and written by Sex and the City‘s Darren Star. The series is set to make its debut next year on the network.
Emily in Paris follows the story of Emily (Collins) a driven twenty-something 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, cultures clash as she adjusts to the challenges of life in a foreign city, while juggling her career, new friendships and love life.
Per the report, Park will play Mindy Chen, who befriends Emily during her journey, despite sharing a much different view of life in Paris.
The series will be executive produced by Star with Collins serving as the producer. Production is scheduled to begin in Paris later this year. The series will also premiere globally through Paramount Network’s international channels.
Park earned rave reviews a number of nominations for her work on Broadways’ Mean Girls, The King and I, and Mamma Mia! among others.
