"Emily's new life in Paris is filled with intoxicating adventures and surprising challenges as she juggles winning over her work colleagues, making friends, and navigating new romances." 

Speaking about the role, Lily told Refinery29: "Emily, like myself and so many of my friends, grew up loving Sex and the City and admired Carrie Bradshaw. She would find it a huge compliment to be in the same sentence as her.

Lily Collins stars as Emily Cooper in the new show

"We really wanted to make sure that it wasn’t recreating Carrie because Carrie is Carrie. And how can you recreate that? We wanted Emily to kind of stand-alone as Emily. If you really pick apart the storylines and the characters, they really are so different in a lot of ways."
