Darren Star Project Casts Lead Actress THR
Darren Star's latest television project has cast its lead actress. The new project from the creator of "Sex and the City," "Melrose Place" and "Beverly Hills, 90210" will star Sutton Foster of "Bunheads," The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The project is the TV Land pilot “Younger.” Foster will play a New Jersey housewife and mother in her early 40s who finds herself suddenly single. Having trouble reinvigorating her career, she decides to trim some years off her age and passes as a 20-something, landing a job at a hot publishing company.
Star will write the pilot and executive produce.
The casting comes five months after ABC Family canceled “Bunheads” after one season.
