Endemol Shine Places Younger on Japan’s NHK


Endemol Shine International (ESI) has licensed the hit U.S. scripted series Younger to NHK in Japan as part of a multi-season deal.

Created by Darren Star (Sex and the City), Younger centers on a woman who lies about her age in order to land a publishing job. The show, which aired for five seasons on TV Land in the U.S., is moving to Paramount Network for its sixth installment. It stars Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Nico Tortorella and Peter Hermann, among others.

Cathy Payne, the chief executive of Endemol Shine International, remarked: “ESI are thrilled that NHK have secured Younger for their Japanese audience. It is another huge success for this incredibly relatable and empowering series that has an immense and loyal fan base around the world.”
