TV Land Orders Darren Star Laffer ‘Younger’ Starring Hilary Duff, Sutton Foster

“Sex and the City” creator Darren Star’s newest series “Younger” has found a home at TV Land.

The cabler has ordered 12 episodes of the half-hour laffer, written, executive produced and directed by Star.

Tony winner Sutton Foster, who most recently starred in ABC Family’s “Bunheads”; Hilary Duff, who played the title character on the Disney Channel’s “Lizzie McGuire”; “Entourage” actress Debi Mazar and Miriam Shor of “GCB” are all set to star in the series. The comedy follows 40-year-old single mother Liza (Foster) who tries to pass herself off as 26 as she prepares to re-enter the workforce. Duff will play Liza’s twenty-something co-worker Kelsey.

“Everyone at TV Land is so passionate about this show and working with Darren,” said TV Land prexy Larry W. Jones in a statement. “‘Younger’s’ serialized style is different for us, yet fits our brand with its humor and relatability. These are compelling characters that our audience will root for, love and love to hate.”

The show will be shot in New York – a first for TV Land. Star is executive producing the series with Jones and Keith Cox as exec producers for TV Land.

“There’s nothing better than making a single camera film comedy in New York – and I’m thrilled to be doing this one with TV Land,” Star said.  “Larry Jones, Keith Cox and their entire team have been incredibly supportive.  Looking forward to working with our awesome cast led by my Broadway crush Sutton Foster. “

“Younger” is slated to premiere in the fall.
