Sutton Foster is headed back to TV — and keeping it youthful.
TV Land has given a 12-episode order to Younger, a single-camera comedy starring the Bunheads actress.
The series — written and executive-produced by Darren Starr (Sex and the City, Melrose Place) — follows Liza (Foster), a single mother in her early 40s whose stalled publishing career is revitalized when she lies and passes herself off as a 20-something.
The cast also includes Debi Mazar (Entourage) as Liza’s best friend Maggie, Miriam Shor (The Good Wife, GCB) as her temperamental boss Diana and Hilary Duff (Gossip Girl, Lizzie McGuire) as Liza’s new co-worker.
Younger will shoot in New York for a fall 2014 premiere.Follow @VladaGelman
