It’s official – Hilary Duff will return to the small screen!
The 26-year-old singer/actress announced today (April 15) that her new series Younger has been picked up by TVLand, marking her first starring role on a television series since the hit Disney show Lizzie McGuire.
According to Deadline.com, Younger will feature Sutton Foster (Bunheads) as a single mom named Liza who lies about her age in order to secure a place in the workforce. Duff will portray her newfound friend and co-worker Kelsey, a 20-something assistant.
The show will be the latest project for Sex and the City creator Darren Star and is based on the novel of the same name by Pamela Redmond Satran.
Meanwhile, Hilary Duff will also be refocusing on her music career, having just signed a record deal and started work on her first album since 2007’s Dignity.
As Sutton Foster is best known for her time on Broadway (she’s even won a Tony Award!), we’re hoping to see a little musical collaboration between her and Duff on Younger!
