Emily in Paris Creator Teases New ‘Much More Mature Show’ with Neil Patrick Harris!

According to Emily in Paris creator Darren Star, his upcoming Netflix series starring Neil Patrick Harris, Uncoupled is a “much more mature show” than his previous offerings.

Speaking to PEOPLE at Variety‘s Power of Women event on Thursday, he also noted the show is also highly relatable because “I think we’ve all had breakups, and it’s about a breakup.”

He continued, “It’s about a gay man who’s [in his] late 40s, who’s single in New York — and it’s an experience that I can relate to and know a lot of people that have gone through it.”

However, said Star, Uncoupled is “not about being gay or straight. It’s about anyone who’s having to start over again.”

A day before Star spoke with PEOPLE, Netflix released its first trailer for the eight-episode series.

Harris, 48, plays a New York City man named Michael whose husband of 17 years leaves him. In addition to facing the prospect of being single in the city, Michael must come to grips with the thought of losing the man he believed to be his soul mate.

Jeffrey Richman, known for his work on shows like Modern Family and Frasier, co-created the series with Star. Both Star and Harris, 48, will serve as executive producers of Uncoupled alongside Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns.

Harris’s costars include Tuc Watkins, Tisha Campbell, Brooks Ashmanskas and Emerson Brooks.

At Thursday’s event, which was sponsored by Lifetime, Star explained to PEOPLE what he views as the most important aspect of creating new shows.

“I wish I had a formula but I don’t, each one is unique,” he said. “Really, it just comes from something, you know, a connection I have to the characters, the experience. I can’t do it any other way.”
