Younger Season 6 Will Air on TV Land; Move to Paramount Network Cancelled

Younger Season 6 Will Air on TV Land; Move to Paramount Network Cancelled
Younger just dropped the first big twist of its upcoming sixth season: Despite previously announced plans to relocate the Darren Star dramedy to Paramount Network, it will instead remain at TV Land, our sister site Deadline reports. Production has already begun on Season 6, which is expected to premiere sometime this year.

Darren Star’s new series Emily in Paris — with The Last Tycoon‘s Lily Collins now cast in the title role — will still premiere on Paramount Network, unlike the new First Wives Club series, which Viacom has now shuffled over to Bet. Until Younger returns, TV Land will be without any original scripted programming.

Gcb Reboot in the Works at The CW

The CW is well and truly looking to the past for some new hits.

The young-skewing network is developing a brand new series based on Good Christian Bitches, the best selling novel from Kim Gatlin which was used as the basis for the short-lived ABC series, Gcb, according to Deadline.

ABC's iteration of the series debuted as a midseason replacement in 2011 and focused on a former high school bully returning to Dallas following a huge scandal that made her go from riches to rags.

‘Good Christian Bitches’ Reboot in the Works at The CW

  • The Wrap
The CW is taking another shot at “Good Christian Bitches,” looking to adapt the Kim Gatlin novel for television once again, six years after ABC’s short-lived adaption titled “Gcb.”

Leila Cohan-Miccio will serve as a writer and executive producer on the show, which is in development at the network. Darren Star and Aaron Kaplan are also back on board to executive produce.

American Housewife Premiere: Is ABC's Newest Family Comedy a Total Dud?

American Housewife Premiere: Is ABC's Newest Family Comedy a Total Dud?
American Housewife was originally called The Second-Fattest Housewife in Westport. It’s a title that perfectly represents Tuesday’s series premiere, assuming you can get past the fact that its central character isn’t actually fat.

Of course, that’s part of the alleged joke in this mean-spirited sitcom that, having changed its title, is hopefully planning to throw out its premise and start fresh in Week 2.

Younger: Miriam Shor and Peter Hermann on Ageism, Diana's Strength & #TeamCharles

  • TVfanatic
We're still counting down the days to the Younger Season 3 premiere, and celebrating with our interview of Miriam Shor and Peter Hermann from the Atx Festival this summer. Miram plays Liza's boss, Diana and Peter plays Diana's boss and Liza's potential love interest, Charles.

Much like Molly Bernard and Dan Amboyer, I've been a fan of Miriam Shor's for quite some time, so we began by talking about her work in Gcb and the underrated gem Swingtown.

Leaving Peter Hermann out of the initial conversation meant hearing his voice was a shocking surprise. It's deep and quite lovely in person. Miriam used the term resonant and it was fun watching Peter get a little bit uncomfortable before the real conversation began, and what a conversation it was. I hope you enjoy reading it.

We have to talk about the episode where Charles had his pants situation, which earned a brilliant reaction from Diana.

Younger Interview: Darren Star and Debi Mazar on Letting Go of the Secret & More

  • TVfanatic
At the Atx Festival this summer, I had the privilege of sitting down with four different sets of couples who make up the wonderful talent behind Younger.

The first interview we're running is with series creator Darren star and one of the stars, Debi Mazar, who plays Maggie. It speaks for itself!

I hope you enjoy the conversation.

What was the genesis of Younger?

Darren: Well, it was originally a book that I found several years ago, and I was always really intrigued by the premise of a woman who left the workforce to have kids and raised a family and then, basically, 14 years later wanted to get back to work and found that doors were closed and she was too old. I knew women who had basically had that same experience in Hollywood. You know, after 12 years or even longer, you come back and find it's really tough...
