“Bunheads” star Sutton Foster and “Lizzie McGuire” star Hilary Duff are both headed back to TV in TV Land’s newest series. The single-camera workplace comedy from “Sex and the City” creator Darren Star called “Younger,” is set to premiere in fall 2014.
The show stars Foster as a newly single 40-year-old mom who has trouble starting a career at the bottom level so late in life. She gets a makeover and passes herself off as 26, landing a job as an assistant and teaming up with her new co-worker (Duff) to make it in her new career.
The 12-episode “Younger” also stars Debi Mazar and Miriam Shor, and will be TV Land’s first-ever show shot in New York City.
“There’s nothing better than making a single-camera film comedy in New York — and I’m thrilled to be doing this one with TV Land,” Star says in a press release. “Looking forward to working with our awesome cast led by my Broadway crush Sutton Foster. “
Says network president Larry W. Jones, “Everyone at TV Land is so passionate about this show and working with Darren. ‘Younger’s’ serialized style is different for us, yet fits our brand with its humor and relatability. These are compelling characters that our audience will root for, love and love to hate.”
