Tony Award winner and former Bunheads star Sutton Foster headlines this new series from Sex and the City's Darren Star. The actress plays Liza, a 40-year-old newly single mother to Hilary Duff's Kelsey, who gets a makeover from her best friend (Debi Mazar) in order to pass herself off as a 26-year-old so she can get back into the working world. And for real-life reference, Foster turns 40 on March 18, but doesn't look a day over 26 (Duff, for the record, is 27), so we're honestly curious to see what this "makeover" entails.
