TV Land's Younger Premiere to Simulcast Coast-to-Coast; YouTube Red Gets Scripted Comedies

Younger

TV Land's hit series and fan favorite Younger is simulcasting coast-to-coast for a one-time-only occasion: the season four premiere on Wednesday, June 28 at 10pm ET/7pm PT, with a re-airing on the west coast at 10pm PT. All this is to celebrate the new LIVE aftershow, Getting Younger, premiering on Facebook @YoungerTV (and simulcasting on Instagram @YoungerTV with behind-the-scenes content) right after the first episode at 10:30pm ET/7:30pm PT, and immediately following every episode for the run of the season. The season premiere of Younger on TV Land will also feature live cut-ins during commercial breaks of the cast getting ready for the aftershow.

Getting Younger, hosted by Taylor Strecker of the popular SiriusXM morning show Wake Up with Taylor, will continue the enthusiastic fan conversation that occurs on social media every week and encourage viewers to submit questions and interact with other superfans and stars alike. Shot in front of a live audience at Pride Global's Flight Deck in Manhattan (420 Lexington Ave), the shows will consist of guest interviews and discussion about the preceding episode, as well as "man on the street" segments. The comedy stars Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Nico Tortorella, Peter Hermann and Molly Bernard. 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. Last season, as Liza continued her lie, her two lives became irreversibly intertwined – with her longtime best friend, Maggie (Mazar), new friend and partner at Empirical, Kelsey (Duff), prickly boss Diana (Shor), and everyone in between, becoming part of the same world. In the season three finale, Liza came to realize the damage her secret has caused and finally unveiled the truth to Kelsey. Now Liza will be forced to deal with the fallout of her deceit and learn that the truth hurts. Younger, which was already recently renewed for a fifth season on TV Land, also has an extensive global footprint, reaching countries including Australia, UK, Italy, Canada, Israel, France, India, Spain and many more.


Some of the biggest names in movie and TV comedy will be making their way to YouTube Red this Fall. From a hilarious reinvention of the traditional cop drama by renowned comedy director Rawson Marshall Thurber, to an all-new comedic scripted series from Rob Huebel, YouTube Red is building up its comedy lineup with Hollywood veterans in front of and behind the camera. In the eight-episode, half-hour comedy Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television, the LAPD thinks it's a good idea to form a task force partnering actors with homicide detectives so they can use their "actor skills" to help solve murders. Starring Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars, Party Down) who plays himself and guest star Samira Wiley (The Handmaid's Tale, Orange Is The New Black) as his no-nonsense partner Detective Mathers, the series features a who's who of broadcast and cable television stars playing bizarro versions of themselves including, but not limited to, Joel McHale, Jon Cryer and Kristen Bell in this super meta half hour comedy procedural which is as much about Hollywood as it is an action-comedy cop show.

Next up, Do You Want To See a Dead Body? is an eight-episode comedy series that follows comedian Rob Huebel (Childrens Hospital, Transparent) and his celebrity friends who begrudgingly join him on adventures that see them frolicking at the beach, getting tacos, ...oh...and seeing a dead body. Celebrity guest stars include Adam Scott, Judy Greer, Terry Crews, Craig Robinson, and John Cho along with many more. More details are to still to come, but expect both series this Fall!
