The Emily in Paris trailer teases the light and saucy drama that occurs follows Emily Cooper’s (Collins) move to Paris. The ex-pat has arrived on French soil because of her new gig as a marketing executive for a French firm. Naturally, Emily’s distinctly American approach to her work causes friction with her French colleagues, thus pushing her to work overtime to validate her efforts. And as she pushes herself at work, Emily will get caught up in at least one romance because, hello, she lives in Paris. Whirlwind romances are a natural hazard of living in the most romantic city in the world, non?

Emily in Paris debuts on Netflix on October 2. You can watch the official trailer below. For more, here’s the list of new movies and TV on Netflix in September.
