Sutton Foster is back, and this time she’s the star of TV Land’s new series, Younger! The series, from Sex and the City creator Darren Star, brings sex, romance and secrets to the Tuesday 10pm timeslot starting March 31st with a two-episode premiere.
I just had the chance to check out Younger last night, and I’m completely in love. My only complaint? It’s a half an hour series instead of a full hour. Granted, that was also one of my issues with Sex in the City. However, it’s great to see Sutton Foster back in action. Her last series, Amy Sherman Palladino’s Bunheads, ended before any fan wanted it to. Fans of the ABC family series will find the same charm with Foster’s comedic timing in Younger, and Sex in the City fans that have been unsuccessfully looking for a satisfying replacement for that series, can finally stop looking. Younger is exactly what you’ve been looking for.
Younger Official Description
Starring Sutton Foster (“Bunheads”),Hilary Duff (“Lizzie McGuire”), Debi Mazar (“Entourage”), Miriam Shor (“GCB”) and Nico Tortorella (“The Following”), the series follows Liza (Foster), a 40-year old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing – and succeeds. Now working under the prickly Diana (Shor), Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with bestie Maggie (Mazar), and her “pretend” life with new friend and coworker Kelsey (Duff)… all while embarking on an exciting and somewhat confusing relationship with sexy tattoo artist Josh (Tortorella).
“Younger,” shot in Brooklyn and New York City, is executive produced and created for television by Darren Star, who also writes and directs for the series. “Younger” is also the reunion between Star and renowned “Sex and the City” costume designer Patricia Field, who serves as the show’s costume consultant.
