Los Angeles Times | Creator Darren Star and actress Sutton Foster reveal what they think makes ‘Younger’ work

Photo credit: Katie Falkenberg / Los Angeles TimesDarren Star’s “Younger” is a dreamy, confectionary fairy tale of New York in its second season on TV Land. Sutton Foster, formerly of the cultishly, critically admired “Bunheads” and before that a Tony-winning star of Broadway musicals, plays Liza, who gave up a career as a book editor to raise her daughter; now divorced at 40, she’s passed herself off as a 26-year-old in order to land a job as an assistant at a publishing house.
With wonderful contributions from Debi Mazar, Hilary Duff and Miriam Shor, the show, which airs Wednesdays, is a classic disguise comedy with a rom-com heart, like a chronological “Tootsie,” with the exception that all it takes for Liza to pass for a person 14 years her junior is some new clothes, a slight adjustment of posture and remembering to keep her cultural references in order.
