SUTTON FOSTER, HILARY DUFF, DEBI MAZAR AND MIRIAM SHOR TO HEADLINE TV LAND’S SITCOM PILOT “YOUNGER” FROM DARREN STAR
 
        Production Starts In New York This Week
 
New York, NY – February 7, 2014 – Production has begun on TV Land’s newest sitcom pilot, “Younger,” starring Tony® Award winner Sutton Foster (“Bunheads”) Hilary Duff (“Lizzie McGuire”), Debi Mazar (“Entourage”) and Miriam Shor (“GCB”). The single-camera project, which is written, executive produced and directed by Darren Star (“Sex and the City”), is based on the novel “Younger” by Pamela Redmond Satran. Patricia Field, who worked with Star on “Sex and the City,” will be a costume consultant on the production.
 
“Younger” follows 40-year-old Liza (Foster), a suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find out it’s nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with a 20-something guy at a bar 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 fellow 20-something Kelsey (Duff) to make it in the career of her dreams.
 
TV Land also recently announced the pick-up of another single-camera sitcom, “Jennifer Falls,” starring Jaime Pressly. The network’s current original sitcoms includes hit series “Hot In Cleveland,” “The Exes,” “The Soul Man” and “Kirstie,”  starring pop culture icons and fan favorites including Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves, Kristen Johnston, Donald Faison, Wayne Knight, David Alan Basche, Kelly Stables, Cedric "The Entertainer," Niecy Nash, Wesley Jonathan, Kirstie Alley, Michael Richards, Rhea Perlman and Eric Petersen.
