Though two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster is spending her summer finding inner beauty in Broadway’s Violet, she’ll spend the fall getting Younger. As previously reported, Foster’s new TV series has been picked up by TV Land for a fall premiere. We recently caught up with the busy triple threat to ask her about starring opposite Hilary Duff in the new sitcom from Sex and the City mastermind Darren Star.
“We start filming in August. I just saw the pilot; it’s really cool,” Foster told Broadway.com. “I play a 40-year-old mom who gives up her career to raise her daughter, and then her husband leaves her. She has trouble getting back into work and getting hired, so she decides to reinvent herself as a 26-year-old. It’s like Tootsie but with age.”
Based on the novel of the same name by Pamela Redmond Satran, the single-camera comedy has been picked up for 12 episodes. Former Bunheads headliner Foster stars opposite Duff, Miriam Shor and Debi Mazar.
“It’s super cute and I get to relive my twenties,” Foster said. “Hilary Duff is awesome, and Darren Star? Not bad! It’s really fun.”
