How 'Younger' Is Capturing Sexual Fluidity on TV

2 August 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the Aug. 2 episode of TV Land's Younger.]

When Molly Bernard first auditioned for the role of Lauren on Younger, a note given to her by creator Darren Star signaled there was more to the character than met her eye. Her six-line audition scene centered on Lauren's reaction to the main character Liza (Sutton Foster) having "a bush."

Bernard initially played her 20-something character's response as disgusted — highlighting the generational difference between Lauren and Liza, the latter who was 40 and posing as a 20-something in order to land a job in »

Younger Boss Breaks Down Liza and Kelsey's Defining Moment: 'That's Where Everything Finally Landed'

12 July 2017 7:32 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Liza’s friendship with Kelsey reached a new high on Wednesday’s Younger — while her tolerance for tequila hit a new low.

VideosYounger Clip: Will Josh Get Over Liza… by Getting Under Montana?

A weekend in the woods for a top-secret publishing retreat turned out to be a solid bonding experience for the friends-turned-frenemies, though it certainly didn’t start that way. In fact, Liza could only take so many bitchy glances and cutting remarks from Kelsey before drunkenly expressing her interest in launching a rival publishing company’s new young-adult imprint.

But things really turned around (pun intended »

In TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek of Wednesday’s Younger (TV Land, 9/8c), Liza’s ex-boyfriend gets acquainted with Maggie’s assistant Montana — and he likes what he says.

'Melrose Place' First Episode: THR's 1992 Review

7 July 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

On July 8, 1992, Fox unveiled Darren Star's Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff Melrose Place, a show that would become a pop culture staple throughout the decade. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

Melrose Place isn't so much a spinoff as it is a turnoff. This new Fbc weekly series, centered on the inhabitants of an apartment house in a hip part of Los Angeles, hopes to attract the same sort of popularity won by Beverly Hills, 90210 by tying its debut about twentysomething adults to some of the teens seen on 90210.

However, the special 90-minute debut of »

Melrose Place Turns 25: An Ode to the Greatest Wig Reveal in TV History

7 July 2017 11:34 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When Melrose Place debuted on 25 years ago on July 8, 1992, it was—well, it was boring. The Aaron Spelling-produced Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-off, created by Darren Star, didn't quite know what it wanted to be and its initial stab at being a soap about the issues of the day (racism, homophobia, domestic violence, etc.) wasn't exactly what summer audiences were looking for. It turned out Fox's audience didn't want to follow a storyline about student debt. (Yes, that really happened. See Billy's story in episode 12 "Polluted Affairs." Or better yet, don't.) While Heather Locklear's arrival in the season's 21st episode as the deliciously bitchy Amanda Woodward is rightly »

Fox Eyes Empire, Star Crossover for Fall

6 July 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Narratively speaking, this should be easier to pull off than the creatively complex Bones/Sleepy Hollow mashup: Fox is mulling a crossover between Lee Daniels’ musical-themed dramas Empire and Star, TVLine has learned exclusively. 

A Fox spokesperson declined to comment, but sources confirm that the network — which is pairing the shows on Wednesdays this fall — is in talks to temporarily merge the universes of both series as part of a one-night premiere event on Sept. 27 (which is when Empire and Star are slated to kick off their respective fourth and second seasons).

The So You Think You Can Dance contestants are going big, in the hopes of not having to go home.

In this new video from the July 17 episode (Fox, 8/7c), the 98 dancers who made it past the reality competition’s audition stage run through an ambitious, involved and flat-out fun number choreographed by La La Land‘s Mandy Moore.

'Melrose Place' at 25: Scrapped Storylines, Partying With World Leaders and How a Wig Reveal Saved the Show

30 June 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

In spring 1992, Fox was riding high with Beverly Hills, 90210, and after just two seasons on the air, the series about a group of high school kids was averaging more than 17 million viewers a week. With a pop culture phenomenon on their hands, network executives were eager to move into a spinoff. At first, 90210 creator Darren Star resisted the idea that a new series be set in college because that’s where 90210 was headed. Instead, Star pitched an idea that sprang from his post-college days living in a West Hollywood, California courtyard apartment complete with a pool.

But if you were hoping that Liza’s Bff would instantly forgive and forget, you — much like Kelsey — were in for a rude awakening.

In Younger's world, about a years' worth of time has passed since viewers first met Liza. When the fourth season premiered Wednesday night, the show's star, played by Sutton Foster, was 41 and continuing to lie to many of those around her about her age in order succeed in the publishing world.

Though it's only been a year in Liza's life, it's been six months since the TV Land series went off the air. And in that time, creator Darren Star saw the world change in wake of the 2016 presidential election. The finale saw Liza confessing her age secret »

Younger” gets attention for its look into the New York social circles and its attention-grabbing fashions, and that’s as it should be. After all, this is a series by Darren Star, who also brought us the delights of “Sex and the City.”

Sutton Foster stars as Liza Miller, a 40-year-old woman who’s just emerged from a failed marriage and must re-enter the work force. The only problem is that no one will even glance at her resume since she became a full-time mother nearly two decades ago. But after she’s mistaken for a 26-year-old at a bar, she decides to pass for much younger and lands a job at publishing firm Empirical Press.

‘Younger’ Boss Darren Star on Liza’s ‘Watergate-Level’ Lie, Season 4’s Extended Episodes

28 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Darren Star is ready for the fourth season of his hit TV Land comedy “Younger” to premiere. In fact, the show’s executive producer has been ready for quite some time, given that the network announced the renewal last June, just as the show was entering production on its previous season — a season in which Liza’s (Sutton Foster) secret about being a 40-something masquerading as a 20-something in the publishing world was revealed to her boyfriend, Josh (Nico Tortorella), as well as to her partner in a new millennial imprint, Kelsey (Hilary Duff).

All those twists will play out in season four, reveals Star.

“What the show’s about is how one relatively small lie can just metastasize and have big, big ramifications. And that’s the story of what’s happening here and what [will] continue to happen,” Star tells Variety. “Let’s just say, in Watergate it wasn’t about the break-in, it »
