TV Land Orders 4th Season of Younger Before 3rd Season Premiere; UP Orders Original Series

Younger

TV Land's critically-acclaimed, fan favorite comedy series Younger, from Sex and the City creator Darren Star, has been renewed for a 12-episode fourth season. The news comes on the heels of the series, starring two-time Tony® winner Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Nico Tortorella, Peter Hermann and Molly Bernard, beginning production on its third season this week in New York. Season three of Younger will premiere on Wednesday, September 28 at 10pm ET/PT, followed by the season two premiere of Impastor, which was originally scheduled for this summer. The second season of Younger continued to grow from the first season and through the second. Season two finished with double digit gains among all key demos (up +67% with Adults 25-54; +66% among Women 25-54; +63% with Adults 18-49; +60% among Women 18-49) versus the series' season one average. Social media numbers climbed as well from end of season one to end of season two, tripling the series' followers on Instagram, doubling its following on Twitter and seeing a +40% increase in Facebook fans. VOD orders also tripled from the premiere episode to the finale episode of season two – a number sure to grow now that seasons one and two are available for binge-watching on TV Land On Demand, and also the TV Land app.


UP

At UP, We Get Family. The entertainment destination that showcases stories about modern American families and the relationships that define them, announced that it has greenlit a new original series, Date My Dad, that will make its world television debut in late Spring 2017. Produced by 50° North Productions in association with EveryWhere Studios, the yet to be cast 10-episode family dramedy tells the story of a single dad raising three teenage daughters. Three years after losing their mother, the daughters make it their mission to get their dad back in the game...the dating game, that is.

Ricky Parker had the perfect life. A former professional baseball player, he was married to Isabella, the love of his life. Ricky's world comes crashing down when Isabella passes away leaving him to raise three daughters alone. Date My Dad picks up three years later while Ricky is raising the girls with the help of his live-in mother-in-law, Rosa. When Rosa unexpectedly announces that she is moving, Ricky becomes panic-stricken knowing he will have to tackle everything from make-up to boys to driving on his own. His daughters – Mirabel (15), Elisa (13) and Gigi (10) – decide that on his 40th birthday, he needs to get out there and start dating again. Ricky is in for a roller coaster ride as he is pushed into the dating world for the first time in twenty years with his girls giving him advice along the way.
