After taking an extended hiatus from the TV screen, Sutton Foster and Hillary Duff grace the screen on TV Land’s newest original show: Younger. The series displays some remarkable resemblance to the famed Sarah Jessica Parker show Sex and the City.
Liza (Foster) is a forty-year-old divorcee who, after a long sabbatical from her life in the working world, finds it impossible to jump back into her career. She decides after hearing a compliment from a younger man to reboot her life, her career, and her age as she pretends to be a twenty-six-year-old who just finished volunteering in India. Courtesy of her best friend Maggie, she undergoes a drastic makeover in order to fill the part as a younger woman in the journalism industry. After making this change in her life, she lands a job as an assistant to Diana (a nightmare of a boss) in a publishing house, where she meets her first twenty-something friend and co-worker, Kelsey (Duff).
Liza must learn the basics of a younger generation she was not brought into, from starting a Twitter account to learning to use hashtags. Now, with the confidence of a young adult, Liza must play the part and pass off as a twenty-six-year-old to keep her life together, her job, and maybe a new, younger man. Younger is a show that says it’s never too late to dream, even if you have to be creative about how you achieve your goals.
