New music, motherhood and now, a return to TV?!
Is there anything Hilary Duff can't accomplish??
The former Disney Channel star is officially set to make an epic return to the small screen now that TV Land has picked up her half-hour comedy titled Younger!
Executive producer Darren Star (of Sex and the City) is super dooper excited that the single-camera show got a 12-episode order, and that Broadway veteran Sutton Foster is on board as well!
The series is based on the novel by Pamela Redmond Satran, and centers around Liza aka Sutton, a 40-something woman who starts living a double life (pretends to be in her late 20's) after her husband leaves her and her child goes to college.
Duffster will play Kelsey, a smart 20-something who befriends Liza after she gets a job at her publishing firm—but has no idea she's a decade older.
Cue the age gap shenanigans…RIGHT NOW!!!
We can hardly wait for Lizzie McGuire's awesome televised return, for realz!
