Writer-director Whit Stillman ("Metropolitan") is taking his signature brand of young relationship comedy to Amazon Instant Video. “The Cosmopolitans” premieres on August 28, 2014. His latest ensemble includes Stillman vets Adam Brody ("Damsels in Distress") and Chloë Sevigny ("The Last Days of Disco"), plus Carrie MacLemore, Dree Hemingway, Freddy Åsblom, Jordan Rountree and Italian actor Adriano Giannini.

How did Stillman wind up on Amazon? The filmmaker was an expat himself in Paris for nine years after "The Last Days of Disco," returning stateside to make "Damsels in Distress." “I had a lot of material set in Paris, and I would always think in terms of doing an independent film,” Stillman told VF.com. “But you also have to make a living, and TV is what’s happening.”

Much like "Barcelona" (my favorite of his films), this half-hour dramatic comedy pilot follows a bunch of American expats around a foreign city, in this case Paris.  Audience reaction will determine whether we get to see any more of the series.
