Faces & Names: Hilary Duff to star in new comedy on TV Land
TV Land is moving forward with half-hour comedy, “Younger,” which comes from producer Darren Star (“Sex and the City”) and stars
Written, executive-produced and directed by Star, the cable channel has given the single-camera comedy a 12-episode order. It is set for debut this fall and will become TV Land’s first show to shoot in New York City.
In addition to Duff, the series also stars Sutton Foster (“Bunheads”), Debi Mazar (“Entourage”) and Miriam Shor (“GCB”).
According to the show description from TV Land: “Younger” follows 40-year-old Liza (Foster), a suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find it’s nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with a young guy at a bar convinces her she looks younger than she is, Liza tries to pass herself off as 26 — with the help of a makeover, courtesy of her best friend Maggie (Mazar). Armed with new confidence, she lands a job as an assistant to the temperamental Diana (Shor) and teams up with her new co-worker and 20-something Kelsey (Duff) to make it in the career of her dreams. Now she just has to make sure no one finds out the secret only she and Maggie share.
