TV Land orders new Sutton Foster series

By Rich Heldenfels Published: April 15, 2014

For those of you who will miss her on "Bunheads." I sure do. The official word:

TV Land has picked up “Younger,” which is written, executive produced and directed by Darren Star (“Sex and the City”), to series with a 12-episode order, it was announced today by Larry W. Jones, President of TV Land. The 30-minute single-camera comedy stars Tony® Award-winning Sutton Foster (“Bunheads”), Hilary Duff (“Lizzie McGuire”), Debi Mazar (“Entourage”) and Miriam Shor (“GCB”) and will premiere fall 2014 on the network. The series will shoot in New York – a first for TV Land.

“Everyone at TV Land is so passionate about this show and working with Darren,” said Jones. “‘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.”

"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,” said Darren Star.  “Larry Jones, Keith Cox and their entire team have been incredibly supportive.  Looking forward to working with our awesome cast led by my Broadway crush Sutton Foster. "

“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.
Darren Star is executive producing the series, and Larry W. Jones and Keith Cox serve as executive producers for TV Land.
