Hilary Duff is all grown up, and to prove it, she’s trading Disney for TV Land.
The cable network has picked up “Younger,” a single-camera comedy series that stars “Bunheads” actress Sutton Foster as a 40ish single mom named Liza who pretends to be 26 to land a job, according to The Futon Critic.
Duff, in her first fulltime TV gig since “Lizzie McGuire,” plays Kelsey, one of her new-co-workers at the company where she works as an assistant to Diana (Miriam Shor, “GCB”).
Debi Mazar also stars in the show, playing Liza’s friend who gives her the makeover. The pilot was written and directed by “Sex and the City” creator Darren Star, and the 12-episode first season will debut this fall.
TV Land will premiere its first single-camera comedy series, “Jennifer Falls,” on Wednesday, June 4. The show stars Jaime Pressly as an executive-turned-waitress, along with Missi Pyle (“Gone Girl”) and “Arrested Development” star Jessica Walter.
