Ashley Park, who is scheduled to return to Broadway in December in Bess Wohl’s Grand Horizons, has landed a role in the new Paramount Network series Emily in Paris.

The half-hour dramedy, which is currently in production in Paris, concerns 20-something Emily (Collins), an American from the Midwest who relocates to Paris for a job with a French marketing firm. Park will play fellow ex-pat Mindy Chen, an au pair who becomes friends with Emily. The two have starkly different experiences adjusting to life in a new country.

Star (Younger) is also the writer of the series and will executive produce along with JAX Media’s Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns. Collins will also produce.
