Hilary Duff is headed back to TV!

Lizzie McGuire herself has joined the new TV Land series "Younger," Deadline reports. The series, from former "Sex and the City" executive producer Darren Star and starring Sutton Foster, is based on the novel by Pamela Redmond Satran.

Foster will play Liza, a newly single 40-year old woman who, after her child goes off to college, embarks on a double life, posing as a 29-year-old in the big city publishing world.

Duff will play Kelsey, "a smart ambitious 20-something who welcomes Liza to the publishing firm, treats her as a contemporary and makes a concerted effort to integrate her into her social life, having no idea that Liza is a decade older," according to Deadline.

Our favorite former "Bunheads" star plus "Sex and the City" executive producer and now Hilary Duff? When can we set the DVR?
