"SEX AND THE CITY" CREATOR DARREN STAR WRITES NEW SHOW FOR TV LAND

New York, NY - August 15, 2013 - TV Land has fast-tracked a project to be written by writer, producer and creator Darren Star, it was announced today by Keith Cox, Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming for the network. This single camera comedy, which is based on the novel "Younger" by Pamela Redmond Satran, will follow the story of a suddenly-single New Jersey housewife and mother in her early 40s who, unable to restart her career, decides to lie about her age and successfully passes herself off as a twentysomething. Armed with a makeover and new resume, she wins a coveted position at the city's hottest publishing company. Pretending to be "younger" doesn't hurt in the bar scene, either, as guys line up like never before.

"Darren has brought to life some of the most dynamic and indelible characters on television today," said Cox. "We are beyond excited to work with him. Between 'Sex and the City,' 'Beverly Hills, 90210' and 'Melrose Place,' he has created some of the most iconic and beloved shows in the history of television." Darren Star and the book are represented by UTA.

TV Land also recently announced a pilot for a multi-camera sitcom, "Jennifer Falls," starring Jaime Pressly. The network's current line-up of original sitcoms airs Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT and includes the hit series "Hot in Cleveland," "The Exes" and "The Soul Man." The series have received several awards and accolades including two 2013 Creative Arts Emmy(R) nominations: one for "Hot in Cleveland" and the other for "The Exes." All of these series star pop culture icons and fan favorites including Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves, Kristen Johnston, Donald Faison, Wayne Knight, David Alan Basche, Kelly Stables, Cedric "The Entertainer," Niecy Nash and Wesley Jonathan. This December, TV Land will debut its newest original series, "Kirstie," which stars Kirstie Alley, Michael Richards, Rhea Perlman and Eric Petersen.
