Tony award-winning actress Sutton Foster just turned 40, but in the TV Land show Younger she gets to be 26 again. Foster plays Liza, a middle-aged woman who needs to get back into the job market. The last time Liza applied for jobs, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram didn’t exist. Now, she’s convinced that no one wants to hire someone her age. So she moves to Brooklyn, gets a few highlights, learns how to tweet, and applies for a job as an assistant to a fancy New York publisher.
It’s fun, Sutton tells NPR’s Rachel Martin. “It’s great to be able to go back to my ’20s,’ but still retain everything that I’ve learned now that I’m older,” she says.
