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”).

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.

****
TELEVISION LEGENDS
****

Kirstie Alley And Chris McDonald




Get cozy with TV Land this winter! TV Land’s newest original sitcom, “Kirstie,” starring Kirstie Alley, premieres in an extra special way on Wednesday, December 4th at 10pm ET/PT with TWO episodes. The all-star cast of “Kirstie” includes Alley’s former “Cheers” co-star Rhea Perlman, Michael Richards of “Seinfeld” fame and Broadway actor Eric Petersen.


In the premiere episode of “Kirstie” at 10pm, Broadway diva Madison “Maddie” Banks (Alley) panics when Arlo (Petersen), the son she gave up for adoption at birth, suddenly shows up hoping to connect after his adoptive parents have died. Though she initially tries to dismiss him, her BFF/assistant Thelma (Perlman) and driver Frank (Richards) convince Maddie to embrace her motherly side and bring Arlo into her world. In the second new episode of the night at 10:30pm, Maddie finds herself competing with a ghost when Arlo moves in and constantly talks about his adoptive mother. On top of the pressure of trying to be a good mom, Maddie also must deal with the relentless manipulative gibes from her understudy, guest star Kristin Chenoweth. Also stopping by “Kirstie” this season are guest stars John Travolta, Jason Alexander, Kathy Griffin, Cloris Leachman, George Wendt and TV Land’s own Kristen Johnston, star of “The Exes.”


Then, the following week on Wednesday, December 11th at 10:30pm ET/PT, don’t miss the return of “The Exes,” starring Wayne Knight, Donald Faison, David Alan Basche, Kelly Stables and Kristen Johnston. Last we left the gang in the summer finale, Phil (Faison) and Eden (Stables) realized that they were more interested in dating than remaining “friends with benefits,” while the rest of the gang was surprised to find out that anything was going on between them at all. In the premiere, the tension in the group comes to a head when Eden lets it slip that she may have “faked it” a few times with Phil.

TV LAND WORKS ON NEW DARREN STAR PROJECT

Darren Star



TV Land has fast-tracked a project to be written by writer, producer and creator Darren Star, it was announced by Keith Cox, Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming for the network. This single camera comedy, which is based on the novel “Younger” by Pamela Redmond Satran, will follow the story of a suddenly-single New Jersey housewife and mother in her early 40s who, unable to restart her career, decides to lie about her age and successfully passes herself off as a twentysomething. Armed with a makeover and new resume, she wins a coveted position at the city’s hottest publishing company. Pretending to be "younger” doesn’t hurt in the bar scene, either, as guys line up like never before.


“Darren has brought to life some of the most dynamic and indelible characters on television today,” said Cox. “We are beyond excited to work with him. Between ‘Sex and the City,’ ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ and ‘Melrose Place,’ he has created some of the most iconic and beloved shows in the history of television.” Darren Star and the book are represented by UTA.

MARY TYLER MOORE CAST ON HOT IN CLEVELAND

****
TELEVISION LEGENDS RE-UNITED
****

Cloris Leachman




Mary Tyler Moore
TV Land announced that the ladies of “Hot in Cleveland” will soon be getting some special visitors in town as Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper and Cloris Leachman reunite with their co-star of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” Betty White. In the episode, Elka (Betty White) and Mamie Sue (Georgia Engel) decide to get their bowling team back together, aptly named GLOB: the Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling. The team, which includes Elka, Mamie Sue, Diane (Moore), Peg (Leachman) and Angie (Harper), had a falling out decades ago after their championship season went to their heads. This is the first time in over 30 years that the five former castmates will be reunited on the sitcom stage. Mary Tyler Moore previously appeared on “Hot in Cleveland” as Elka’s cellmate in a season two episode. Shows like ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ which stars four women, would not be here today without ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ and its incredible female-led cast,” said Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land. “Mary, Valerie, Cloris, Georgia and of course our Betty were all pioneers for women in television.”



TV Land’s hit sitcom “Hot in Cleveland” returns for its summer season with a LIVE episode on Wednesday, June 19 at 10pm ET. The west coast will receive the live-to-tape version three hours later at 10pm PT. The series, which was just picked up for a fifth season, stars television favorites Valerie Bertinelli (“One Day at a Time,”), Jane Leeves (“Frasier”), Wendie Malick (“Just Shoot Me!”) and Betty White (“The Golden Girls”). 



“The Mary Tyler Moore Show” centered around Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore), an ambitious, young and single assistant producer, and her career at the fictional WJM-TV News. With her best friend Rhoda Morgenstern (Valerie Harper) and resident busy-body Phyllis Lindstrom (Cloris Leachman), Mary tackled the stereotypes of being an independent working woman in what was typically a “man’s world.” The show also starred Ed Asner as Mary’s tough-love boss, station producer Lou Grant, Gavin MacLeod as cynical head news writer Murray Slaughter, and Ted Knight as the dim-witted anchorman Ted Baxter. Moore’s company, MTM Enterprises, produced the series for CBS.
