Sutton Foster





New York, NY– GHOSTLIGHT DELUXE, an imprint of Ghostlight Records, will release Take Me to the World — the long-awaited third album from two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster — on Friday, June 1. Customers that pre-order the digital album will immediately receive a download of the album’s second single. “I’m on My Way / On My Way” is a medley of one of Sutton’s signature songs from the musical Violet, combined with the traditional spiritual. The album is being released in conjunction with the fifth season of the critically-acclaimed TV Land series “Younger,” which returns on Tuesday, June 5. To pre-order the album.



Take Me to the World features Sutton’s signature vocal stylings on classics written by musical theater luminaries including Stephen Sondheim (“Take Me to the World”), Cole Porter (“Give Him the Ooh-La-La”), and Kander & Ebb (“A Quiet Thing”), as well as legendary pop songwriters such as Paul Simon (“Old Friends / Bookends”) and James Taylor (“You Can Close Your Eyes”). The album takes listeners on Sutton’s personal journey inspired by the birth of her daughter. The recording’s first single, also available now to customers who pre-order the digital album, is “Stars and the Moon” with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown.



As a Ball State University faculty member in the Department of Theatre and Dance, Sutton enlisted the Ball State Symphony Orchestra and other Ball State faculty and students from a variety of areas, including the Musical Theatre program, for this innovative, collaborative recording. Take Me to the World is produced by Sutton’s longtime musical director – and another Ball State faculty member – Michael Rafter.



Sutton is represented on Ghostlight with her previous two solo albums – Wish and An Evening with Sutton Foster: Live at the Café Carlyle – in addition to Original Broadway Cast Recordings of The Drowsy Chaperone, Little Women, and Anything Goes (2011 Cast).



SUTTON FOSTER is a two-time Tony winning actress, singer and dancer who currently stars as Liza in the TV Land series, “Younger.” Previously, Foster starred in Amy Sherman-Palladino’s ABC Family series, “Bunheads.” Sutton is one of Broadway’s biggest stars, performing lead roles in Anything Goes, Shrek The Musical, The Drowsy Chaperone, Little Women, Thoroughly Modern Millie and many more over the past two decades. As a solo artist, Sutton tours the country with her hit concerts. She has also graced the stages of Carnegie Hall, Feinstein’s, Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series and many others.

TV LAND'S HIT 'YOUNGER' IS BACK FOR THE SUMMER


YOUNGER




New York, NY – June 3, 2017 – TV Land’s captivating dramedy “Younger” is back this summer, and this season’s trailer makes one thing clear: the truth hurts. Last season, Liza (Sutton Foster) finally admitted her bombshell secret to Kelsey (Hilary Duff) – that she’s not 26 and she’s been lying all along – and viewers will get to see how it all unfolds on the Wednesday, June 28th premiere at 10pm. But Liza’s relationship with Kelsey is not the only thing left in shambles. Her boyfriend Josh (Nico Tortorella) was left broken when he stumbled upon Liza and her boss, Charles (Peter Hermann), kissing right before he was about to propose. With her professional and personal lives on the line, Liza might only be left with the truth.



Season four of the Darren Star-created series will also see some amazing guest stars, including Emmy® and Tony® winner Kristin Chenoweth (“Wicked,” “Hairspray Live”) as Marylynne Keller, a DC “spin doctor” trying to sell a book to Empirical; heartthrob Charles Michael Davis (“The Originals”) as Zane Anders, a competitor (and maybe more) to Kelsey; Aasif Mandvi (“The Daily Show”) as Jay Mallick, a 40-something publisher that approaches Liza to run her own imprint; Jennifer Westfeldt (“Friends with Kids”) as Pauline, a new author that Liza meets and in whom she sees herself; Meredith Hagner (“Search Party”), who plays Montana, a young artist and fan of Maggie’s (Debi Mazar) work; and Phoebe Dynevor (“Snatch”), playing Clare, an Irish bartender that befriends Liza and the group. “Younger” will also see the return of some fan favorites this summer, including Michael Urie (“Ugly Betty”) as literary agent Redmond; Mather Zickel (“Masters of Sex”) as Diana’s (Miriam Shor) live-in boyfriend Richard; Tessa Albertson (“The Good Wife”) as Liza’s daughter Caitlin; and Ben Rappaport (“Mr. Robot”) as Max, Lauren’s (Molly Bernard) doctor boyfriend.



“Younger,” which has already been renewed for a fifth season, films at the legendary SilverCup Studios in New York and is created, executive produced and written by Darren Star, with Tony Hernandez of JAX Media executive producing for TV Land. Dottie Zicklin and Eric Zicklin also serve as executive producers and writers on the series.

SUTTON FOSTER'S 'YOUNGER' BREAKS TV LAND RECORDS

Sutton Foster



New York, NY – TV Land and Darren Star's critical darling “Younger” has reached new series highs in Live+3 after the highly-anticipated season two finale aired last Wednesday (3/23/16), netting 1.3 million total viewers. The median age of the audience for the Sutton Foster comedy is 12 years younger (46 years old) than TV Land’s channel prime average, and four years younger than season one.



Other highlights include (all info Live+3):



Compared to the season one average, “Younger” has seen double-digit growth among:



Adults 25-54 (+70%) and Women 25-54 (+65%)
Adults 18-49 (+64%) and Women 18-49 (+63%)
Adults 18-34 (+35%) and Women 18-34 (+35%)



Versus channel prime average, “Younger” has seen notable triple-digit gains among:



Adults 25-54 (+179%) and Women 25-54 (+253%)
Adults 18-49 (+255%) and Women 18-49 (+344%)
Adults 18-34 (+336%) and Women 18-34 (+492%)



VOD numbers have nearly tripled, with a dramatic increase of +195%, from 175,000 views in the first week of season two to over 516,000 in week 10.



“Younger” has also tripled its followers on Instagram, doubled its following on Twitter and saw a +40% increase in Facebook fans from the end of season one to the end of season two.
The show ranked #1 on iTunes Comedy Episode downloads two days after the season launch, and has been in the Top 10 every day since.



“Younger” follows Liza (two-time Tony® winner Sutton Foster), a 40-year old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing – and succeeds. Now working under the prickly Diana (Miriam Shor), Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with best friend Maggie (Debi Mazar), and her “pretend” life with her new crew – friend/coworker Kelsey (Hilary Duff) and fashion publicist Lauren (Molly Bernard). At the end of season two, Liza’s secret took a tragic turn when Kelsey’s fiancé Thad (Dan Amboyer) was killed in an accident right after he discovered her lie, and Liza’s love life is in disarray as she tries to choose between on-again/off-again boyfriend Josh (Nico Tortorella) and her boss Charles (Peter Hermann), with whom she has an undeniable connection. Season three is set to shoot in New York this summer.

SUTTON FOSTER STARS IN BROOKLYN FILMED 'YOUNGER'

Sutton Foster



Darren Star, creator of “Sex and The City,” “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Melrose Place,” brings sex, romance and secrets to Tuesday night with TV Land’s highly-anticipated new series “Younger,” which will premiere with two new back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, March 31st at 10pm and 10:30pm ET/PT. Starring Sutton Foster (“Bunheads”), Hilary Duff (“Lizzie McGuire”), Debi Mazar (“Entourage”), Miriam Shor (“GCB”) and Nico Tortorella (“The Following”), the series follows Liza (Foster), a 40-year old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing – and succeeds. Now working under the prickly Diana (Shor), Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with bestie Maggie (Mazar), and her “pretend” life with new friend and coworker Kelsey (Duff)…all while embarking on an exciting and somewhat confusing relationship with sexy tattoo artist Josh (Tortorella).



As part of an extensive preview strategy, the first episode is now available in full On Demand, on TVLand.com, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video and iTunes.



“Younger,” shot in Brooklyn and New York City, is executive produced and created for television by Darren Star, who also writes and directs for the series. “Younger” is also the reunion between Star and renowned “Sex and the City” costume designer Patricia Field, who serves as the show’s costume consultant.

SUTTON FOSTER STARS IN TV LANDS 'YOUNGER'

Sutton Foster




Production has begun on TV Land’s newest sitcom pilot, “Younger,” starring Tony® Award winner Sutton Foster (“Bunheads”) Hilary Duff (“Lizzie McGuire”), Debi Mazar (“Entourage”) and Miriam Shor (“GCB”). The single-camera project, which is written, executive produced and directed by Darren Star (“Sex and the City”), is based on the novel “Younger” by Pamela Redmond Satran. Patricia Field, who worked with Star on “Sex and the City,” will be a costume consultant on the production.



“Younger” follows 40-year-old Liza (Foster), a suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find out it’s nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with a 20-something guy at a bar convinces her she looks younger than she is, Liza tries to pass herself off as 26 – with the help of a makeover, courtesy of her best friend Maggie (Mazar). Armed with new confidence, she lands a job as an assistant to the temperamental Diana (Shor) and teams up with her new co-worker and fellow 20-something Kelsey (Duff) to make it in the career of her dreams.



TV Land also recently announced the pick-up of another single-camera sitcom, “Jennifer Falls,” starring Jaime Pressly. The network’s current original sitcoms includes hit series “Hot in Cleveland,” “The Exes,” “The Soul Man” and “Kirstie,” starring pop culture icons and fan favorites including Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves, Kristen Johnston, Donald Faison, Wayne Knight, David Alan Basche, Kelly Stables, Cedric "The Entertainer," Niecy Nash, Wesley Jonathan, Kirstie Alley, Michael Richards, Rhea Perlman and Eric Petersen.
