New York Daily News | Darren Star’s ‘Younger’ tackles the workplace age gap with gloss and wit, portrays a more realistic sex in a more realistic city

Liza walks to a barTelevision is finally putting age before Gucci. “Sex and the City” mastermind Darren Star is back with another show about four feisty and fashionably dressed females trying to make it in New York. But “Younger,” which premieres Tuesday on TV Land, isn’t just another chapter in “The Carrie Diaries” — it’s a glossy look at the generation gap between career women.
Sutton Foster stars as Liza, a 40-year-old whose ex-husband has left her penniless. Worse, she can’t get back into the workforce because companies want fresh-faced college grads, and not washed-up moms. So Liza fakes it — changing her look, moving to Brooklyn, and updating her email from AOL to Gmail. Posing as a 26-year-old, she gets the job.
It’s not “Sex and the City” — but it does make a timely statement about modern women.
