TV Land Changes Premiere Date for Original Comedies; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of November 23, 2015)

Younger

TV Land announced that the second season of its critically-acclaimed Darren Star series Younger and new bold comedy Teachers, from Chicago improv group The Katydids, will now premiere Wednesday, January 13 at 10pm ET/PT. The hour-long season premiere of Younger will begin at 10pm ET/PT, with two back-to-back episodes, immediately followed by the series premiere of Teachers at a special time of 11pm ET/PT. Beginning Wednesday, January 20th, Teachers will take its regularly scheduled spot of Wednesdays at 10:30pm ET/PT. So both series will now air Wednesday nights, instead of the originally planned Tuesday nights.

Younger, now shooting at the renowned Silvercup Studios in Long Island City, follows Liza (two-time Tony(R) winner Sutton 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 (Miriam Shor), Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with bestie Maggie (Debi Mazar), and her "pretend" life with her new crew - friend/coworker Kelsey (Hilary Duff), fashion publicist Lauren (Molly Bernard) and the always-sketchy Thad (Dan Amboyer), Kelsey's boyfriend. After Liza let her secret slip to sexy young tattoo artist Josh (Nico Tortorella) at the end of the first season, she now must try to salvage their relationship, all while navigating a confusing chemistry with her boss Charles (Peter Hermann) and dealing with her daughter Caitlin's (Tessa Albertson) return from studying abroad. The series is written and executive produced by entertainment icon Darren Star.

Teachers

Teachers revolves around a group of elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds of America's youth, but don't have their own lives together at all. From Ms. Bennigan awkwardly flirting with the school's resident "hot dad," to Ms. Snap hooking up with the school janitor, and Ms. Watson making her class Facebook-stalk an ex-boyfriend, they're changing the world - perhaps not for the better - one student at a time. Teachers is written by and stars The Katydids, who wrote and acted in the popular web series of the same name and are each named a version of "Katie" - Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O'Brien and Kathryn Renée Thomas. Along with The Katydids, Alison Brie (Community) and showrunners Ian Roberts and Jay Martel (Key and Peele) executive produce the series. Matt Miller and Cap Gun TV are also executive producers.
