Hilary Duff is finally making a comeback.
Just a few days after announcing her split from husband Mike Comrie, it’s been announced that she’s set to star in Younger, a new comedy series from Darren Star, the man behind Sex and the City.
According to Deadline:
Hilary Duff is set to star opposite Sutton Foster in Younger, TV Land’s single-camera comedy pilot written and executive produced by Sex And the City creator Darren Star.
Based on the novel by Pamela Redmond Satran, Younger centers on Liza (Foster), a 40-something woman who reinvents herself and starts living a double life; one as a suburban mom and another as a 29-year old working girl in the city, after her husband leaves her and her child goes to college. Duff will play Kelsey, a smart ambitious 20-something who welcomes Liza to the publishing firm, treats her as a contemporary and makes a concerted effort to integrate her into her social life, having no idea that Liza is a decade older.
It certainly sounds interesting. Combine this news with the fact that Hilary is back in the studio recording her new album — it looks like Hilary Duff is going to have a pretty big year.
