NETFLIX has launched its own travel company that lets TV fans explore the filming locations behind their favourite shows.
Streaming giants Netflix and Paramount have partnered with travel startup DHARMA to create unique holiday experiences.
Paris by Emily, which has been inspired by the TV show Emily in Paris, will be the first travel trip offered by the joint collaboration.
The award-winning Netflix show follows the antics of an American woman named Emily who moves from Chicago to Paris for work.
Netflix trips to the French capital will take place in small groups of eight to 16 people, and are expected to last between four and five nights.
Groups will be led, and curated by, lifestyle influencers who will be known as 'Emileaders'.

The French holidays will include a behind-the-scenes tour of popular locations, a pastry-making class, a Palais Royal Content Capture experience, and a French lesson at a Parisian cafe.
Other key features are said to include a visit to a private designer atelier, a masterclass on the art of French seduction, and a Spritz cocktail-making session.
Some meals will also be provided on the trip including four breakfasts, two evening meals, and two Aperitifs (after-dinner drinks).
Charaf El Mansouri, CEO at DHARMA, said: "We crafted these ‘Paris by Emily’ trips to ensure guests leave Paris with something far more meaningful than just a souvenir beret and some photos. Our core conviction is that the future of travel is not about the where but the why."

“So many of us seek travel experiences that are transformational. Series like Emily in Paris make you wish there was a 'Book This Trip' button at the end of every episode – that’s the opportunity we see ahead."
Meanwhile, Netflix TV personality, and first ambassador host, Ines Tazi, added: "I love creating bridges between online and offline, fiction and reality.
"Curating this new experience allows me to share what I cherish about Paris, from fashion and gastronomy to art and history.
"Just like Emily in Paris, this is an ode to the French capital for culturally curious minds!"
However you'll need to start saving – prices start from £2,155 per person for a shared room, and don't include the cost of any flights.
And Paris isn't the only destination that TV fans have been flocking to in recent years, tourists have also been exploring parts of the UK too.
Richmond, in southwest London, recently rose to fame as one of the filming locations for the hit television show Ted Lasso, which stars Jason Sudeikis.
A Ted Lasso tour to spot all the filming locations has even popped up in Richmond.
Meanwhile, other parts of the UK have also become famous thanks to the film industry.
