Pasadena, CA – January 6, 2016 – TV Land and Darren Star's critically-acclaimed hit "Younger," called "flirty fun" by Entertainment Weekly and "sexy" by People.com, has been renewed for a 12-episode third season, it was announced today at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Winter Press Tour at The Langham Hotel in Pasadena, CA. Star and the entire cast of the show, including Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Nico Tortorella, Miriam Shor, Molly Bernard, Peter Hermann and Dan Amboyer were all on hand for the announcement. The news comes before the comedy has even begun airing its second season, which is set to start on Wednesday, January 13th at 10pm ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes for an hour-long premiere. 

"'Younger' was a critical success and fan favorite right out of the gate, and Darren Star and his team of writers have brought an even sexier, shocking sophomore season to the table," said Keith Cox, Executive Vice President, Development and Original Programming, TV Land. "We're thrilled with the show and what it's done for the network, and we're so confident in our viewers' passion for it. We're excited for our audience to see season two and beyond."

Season two also boasts some amazing guest stars, including Matthew Morrison ("Glee"), as a reclusive author who lives on a farm, Camryn Manheim ("The Practice") as a psychologist pitching a life guidebook to people in their 20s, and returning guest stars Kathy Najimy ("Sister Act") and Josh Pais ("Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll"), as Denise and Todd, Lauren's (Bernard) parents, as well as Martha Plimpton ("Raising Hope"), back as Cheryl Sussman, the former colleague who blackmailed Liza (Foster) in season one. Also guest starring over the course of the season is Bobby Flay ("Throwdown with Bobby Flay"), Michael Urie ("Ugly Betty"), best-selling author Jennifer Weiner, David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp"), Ice-T ("Law & Order: SVU"), Richard Masur ("Transparent"), Diane Rehm ("The Diane Rehm Show"), Dolly Wells ("Blunt Talk") and more.

"Younger" follows Liza (two-time Tony® winner Sutton Foster), a 40-year old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing – and succeeds. Now working under the prickly Diana (Miriam Shor), Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with best friend Maggie (Debi Mazar), and her "pretend" life with her new crew – friend/coworker Kelsey (Hilary Duff), fashion publicist Lauren (Molly Bernard) and the always-sketchy Thad (Dan Amboyer), Kelsey's boyfriend. After Liza let her secret slip to sexy young tattoo artist Josh (Nico Tortorella) at the end of the first season, she now must try to salvage their relationship, all while navigating a confusing chemistry with her boss Charles (Peter Hermann) and dealing with her daughter Caitlin's (Tessa Albertson) return from studying abroad. The series is written and executive produced by entertainment icon Darren Star.

​​​​​HUGH DAVIDSON, LARRY DORF AND RACHEL RAMRAS TO WRITE, STAR AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCE


Pasadena, CA – January 6, 2016 – TV Land has ordered a pilot for "Nobodies," starring, executive produced and written by Groundlings alums Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras ("Mike Tyson Mysteries"), and also to be executive produced by Emmy® winner and Oscar® nominee Melissa McCarthy and acclaimed comedic actor/director Ben Falcone through their production company On The Day. The pilot is inspired by Davidson, Dorf and Ramras, who in their real lives, watched as their friends from The Groundlings went on to star in blockbuster comedies and win Oscars, while they toiled away in Hollywood. The news was announced this morning at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Winter Press Tour in Pasadena by Keith Cox, Executive Vice President, Development and Original Programming, TV Land.


"Nobodies" will follow Davidson, Dorf and Ramras, playing themselves, as they try desperately to land one of their famous friends for a feature script that they've developed so that they, too, can rise to fame in Hollywood. The pilot will shoot in Los Angeles in winter of 2016 with McCarthy and Falcone directing and guest-starring – Falcone in the pilot, and McCarthy in a future episode, should the pilot go to series.​


"Hugh, Larry, and Rachel tell stories that are so funny, you honestly can't believe they're true," said Cox. "It's their unique take on exactly what it's like toiling away in Hollywood – and it is that unfiltered comedy that we're looking for."


This project is one of several in development for TV Land, along with pilot "I Shudder" starring Hamish Linklater and Megan Hilty and produced by Dan Jinks and Paul Rudnick, and the untitled John Wells/John Riggi/Warner Horizon Television project inspired by the life of Kyle Richards ("The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills").

​ "Younger" Season Two Kicks Off With Fan-Demanded One-Hour Premiere At 10pm ET/PT, Followed By The Premiere Of New Comedy "Teachers"

"Teachers" Takes Its Regularly Scheduled Spot Beginning Wednesday, January 20th* At 10:30pm ET/PT: Watch The Latest Trailer Now!

*Please note: This press release has been edited to reflect the new date/day that "Younger" and "Teachers" will air.​

New York, NY – October 14, 2015 – TV Land announced today that its buzzworthy and critically-acclaimed series "Younger" will return Wednesday, January 13th at 10pm ET/PT with double the romance, drama and excitement, airing two back-to-back episodes for a one-hour season opener. Immediately following will be the premiere of the network's bold new comedy "Teachers" from Chicago-based improv group The Katydids and executive producers Alison Brie ("Community"), Jay Martel and Ian Roberts ("Key and Peele"). "Teachers" will regularly air on Wednesdays at 10:30pm ET/PT, right after new episodes of "Younger."

WATCH THE NEW "TEACHERS" TRAILER NOW!

​"'Younger' and 'Teachers' represent two very different sides of the new, smarter and edgier TV Land," said Keith Cox, Executive Vice President, Development and Original Programming, TV Land. "Season 2 of 'Younger' brings even more witty, sexy and cliffhanger moments and 'Teachers' is hilariously bizarre, pushing the envelope and bringing the network into new comedic territory."

"Younger," now shooting at the renowned Silvercup Studios in Long Island City, follows Liza (two-time Tony® winner Sutton Foster), a 40-year old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing – and succeeds. Now working under the prickly Diana (Miriam Shor), Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with bestie Maggie (Debi Mazar), and her "pretend" life with her new crew – friend/coworker Kelsey (Hilary Duff), fashion publicist Lauren (Molly Bernard) and the always-sketchy Thad (Dan Amboyer), Kelsey's boyfriend. After Liza let her secret slip to sexy young tattoo artist Josh (Nico Tortorella) at the end of the first season, she now must try to salvage their relationship, all while navigating a confusing chemistry with her boss Charles (Peter Hermann) and dealing with her daughter Caitlin's (Tessa Albertson) return from studying abroad. The series is written and executive produced by entertainment icon Darren Star.

"Teachers" revolves around a group of elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds of America's youth, but don't have their own lives together at all. From Ms. Bennigan awkwardly flirting with the school's resident "hot dad," to Ms. Snap hooking up with the school janitor, and Ms. Watson making her class Facebook-stalk an ex-boyfriend, they're changing the world – perhaps not for the better – one student at a time.  "Teachers" is written by and stars The Katydids, who wrote and acted in the popular web series of the same name and are each named a version of "Katie" – Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O'Brien and Kathryn Renée Thomas. Along with The Katydids, Alison Brie ("Community") and showrunners Ian Roberts and Jay Martel ("Key and Peele") executive produce the series. Matt Miller and Cap Gun TV are also executive producers.

Brie will make a guest appearance in the pilot episode of "Teachers" as Lauren Lark, a district administrator facilitating an anti-bullying workshop at the school, who ironically has a less-than-friendly past with one of the teachers, Deb Adler (Thomas). Other guest stars making appearances this season include Rob Riggle ("21 Jump Street"), Lacey Chabert ("Mean Girls"), Jesse Bradford ("Bring It On"), Tim Bagley ("Knocked Up"), Sam Richardson ("Veep"), Trevor Larcom ("Fresh Off The Boat") and more.
