LONDON – Endemol Shine International has secured a deal with ProSiebenSat.1 Media in Germany for the hit US series Younger. The series premiered on the media group’s free TV channel ProSieben in mid-July.

 

The deal was negotiated by Endemol Shine International’s Sales Director for Germany, Matthew Hodges and includes all five seasons produced to date.

 

Younger comes from Sex and the City creator Darren Star and stars two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Nico Tortorella, Peter Hermann, Molly Bernard and Charles Michael Davis.

 

The series follows Liza, a woman who lies about her age at her job in the highly competitive world of publishing. As Liza’s personal and professional lives have become irreversibly intertwined over time, keeping the secret proves more and more difficult.

 

Season 5 premiered in the US on June 5 with the sixth season confirmed before the Season 5 premiere.

 

Rüdiger Böss, EVP Group Content Acquisitions and Sales at ProSiebenSat.1, said: “After the big success of Sex and the City on our TV stations, I am thrilled to offer our audience the next hit series from Darren Star. I am already a big fan, because as I always say: 40 is the new 26.”
