TV Land is dumping nostalgia and going Younger!
The network that has brought us grown-up comedies like Hot in Cleveland and The Exes, are targeting the millennial marketplace with their new show Younger, and ET was the first on the set.
The charming single-camera comedy stars Sutton Foster as Liza, a recently divorced 40-year-old who lands a job in publishing only after she passes herself off as 26. "I always think of it like Tootsie but with age," Foster told ET.
Series creator Darren Star, who changed the TV landscape with Sex and the City on HBO, is already pushing the envelope with the edgy adult content in Younger. And with the exception of 27-year-old Hilary Duff, the women in the cast are mature and proud of it.
"I have earned every damn line on my face," Debbie Mazar, who plays Liza's Brooklyn roommate, joked. "I wouldn't change my experiences with anybody."
"It's actually interesting to kind of go back into the world of the 20s, but being able to retain all that I have learned with age," Foster said with a laugh. "Thank God. I don't think you could pay me to go back to my 20s."
Younger debuts a time when seasoned women on TV are more common as Bravo's Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce proved when it premiere last year.
Younger premieres tonight at 10 p.m. on TV Land.
