Soooo, I was watching Friends last week and I kept seeing commercials for this show. The third new episode was airing right after, and I noticed that the pilot and second ep were after that, so I TiVo-ed all three, watched all three, and I have to say, it is really cute. It’s from the creator of Sex and the City and stars Sutton Foster (Bunheads), that cute not-actually-gay guy from The Following, Lizzie McGuire herself, and the mean lady from Beethoven’s 2nd. Millennials to moms will probably get a kick out of it. (Based on my two latter cast descriptions, I’m clearly in the right age group.)
It would be easy to catch reruns and get up to speed in time for the next episode, so I recommend doing so!
Follows 40-year-old Liza (Foster), a suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find out it’s nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with a 20-something guy at a bar convinces her she looks younger than she is, Liza tries to pass herself off as 26—with the help of a makeover, courtesy of her best friend Maggie (Mazar). Armed with new confidence, she lands a job as an assistant to the temperamental Diana (Shor) and teams up with her new co-worker and fellow 20-something Kelsey (Duff) to make it in the career of her dreams.
