TV Land Moves Younger Premiere to March 31; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of December 8, 2014)

Younger

TV Land is giving viewers a look into Younger, the network's newest original series from Sex and the City creator Darren Star, with an extended scene released. Now shooting in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the series stars two-time Tony Award® winner Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor and Nico Tortorella. Younger re-teams Star with Patricia Field, the renowned stylist who was behind the trend-setting looks on Sex and the City. The series will now premiere on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT (it was previously scheduled to launch Jan. 13). TV Land has ordered 12 episodes. 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 the sexy Josh (Tortorella), a young tattoo artist, 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 discovers her secret.
