Exclusive

Younger's Kelsey & Liza Pitch PEOPLE & EW's Jess Cagle on a YA Bonfire of the Vanities–Meets–The Walking Dead

Posted on

 

What better way to get your book imprint off the ground than with a visit to Entertainment Weekly and PEOPLE’s Editorial Director Jess Cagle?

PEOPLE and EW have the exclusive extended scene from Wednesday’s episode of Younger, showing what happened after Liza (Sutton Foster) and Kelsey (Hilary Duff) stopped by the New York offices of EW to chat with Cagle about Kelsey’s book imprint, Millennial.

“Kelsey is the youngest woman in the business to be running her own imprint,” Liza gushes.

And an eager Kelsey can’t help but brag about their manuscript: a young journalist’s dystopian novel packed with zombies that “occupy Wall Street.”

But it’s Cagle who gets the last laugh, with a well-timed parting word for Bravo honcho Andy Cohen — watch to see it unfold!

“I shouldn’t say anything else, but Scott Rudin loves it and Paramount’s already talking about a three-picture deal,” Kelsey says in the clip.

 

Although his appearance is brief, Foster previously told PEOPLE that Cagle “nailed it.”

Duff explained the scene: “We have started this new imprint together and are kind of doing everything we can to be known and be heard. So we get this amazing opportunity to sit down with [Jess], and it’s kind of a funny scene because I think he got forced into the meeting a little bit, or tricked into it, so we’re trying to make ourselves seem important.”

Younger airs Wednesdays (10 p.m. ET) on TV Land.
