TV Land's 'Younger' Comedy Secures Premiere Date, First Trailer
TV Land's new comedy Younger has an official premiere date and an official full-length trailer.
Starring Tony winner Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff, the 12-episode Younger will premiere Tuesday, Jan. 13, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Viacom-owned cable network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
From executive producer Darren Star, Younger follows 40-year-old Liza (Foster), a single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find it's nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with Josh (Nico Tortorella), a young tattoo artist, convinces her she looks younger than she is, Liza tries to pass as 26 — with the help of a makeover, courtesy of her best friend (Debi Mazar). Miriam Shor co-stars.
Filming is underway in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Patricia Field, who worked with Star on Sex and the City, will serve as the costume designer on Younger.
“We are all excited about the premiere on January 13,” said Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land. “This show is sleek, alluring and all-around fantastic. The characters are funny and relatable, Darren is full of creativity and the sexy cast is bringing their A-game. The end of every script leaves us wanting more.”
The news comes one day after TV Land greenlighted two new comedies: Michael Rosenbaum's Impastor and Teachers, executive produced by Community's Alison Brie.
