Miriam Shor (GCB, The Good Wife) has been set as a series regular in Younger, TV Land‘s single-camera comedy pilot written and executive produced by Sex And The City creator Darren Star. Younger centers on Liza (Sutton Foster), a 40-something woman who reinvents herself and starts living a double life; one as a suburban mom and another as a 29-year old working girl in the city, after her husband leaves her and her child goes to college. Shor will play Diana, the high-strung head of PR for Passion Press. Diana is described as a disdainful woman (known as “Trout Pout”) who likes to get ahead by standing on the shoulder of her subordinates as she slowly pushes them into the mud. Shor is repped by Gersh, Impression Entertainment and attorney James Adams.
Austin Stowell (Dolphin Tale) has been cast in Ed Burns’ TNT pilot Public Morals, executive produced by Steven Spielberg. Public Morals is set in 1967 in New York City’s Public Morals Division, where cops walk the line between morality and criminality as the temptations that come from dealing with all kinds of vice can get the better of them. It centers on cop Terry Muldoon (Burns), who knows the line between the good guys and bad guys is thin, and he is determined to raise his sons to be honest and hardworking as he deals with the dark underbelly of the vice world. Stowell will play Muldoon’s cousin Sean O’Bannon, a handsome, tough Irish cop who tries to keep his friends out of trouble. Austin is repped by CAA and ROAR.
