Former Disney Channel Star Joins New Darren Star Comedy Deadline
A former star of the Disney Channel has landed a role in a new TV Land comedy project from "Sex and the City" creator Darren Star. Deadline.com reports that Hilary Duff, the former star of Disney Channel’s “Lizzie McGuire,” will star opposite Sutton Foster in the TV Land pilot “Younger.”
The project, based on a novel by Pamela Redmond Satran, tracks a 40-something woman who pretends to be younger in order to get a job. Foster is playing the main character, who leads a double life as a suburban mom on one hand and a 29-year-old office worker on the other.
Duff will play Kelsey, a 20-something who welcomes Foster’s character to the publishing firm where they work and tries to integrate her into her social life.
