TV Land announced today on Facebook that its buzzworthy and critically-acclaimed series Younger will return Tuesday, January 12th 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,Jay Martel and Ian Roberts.
Teachers will regularly air on Tuesdays at 10:30pm ET/PT, right after new episodes of Younger.
“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 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.
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.
