PHILIPPINES (June 20, 2017) – Get ready for a different spin on a family comedy with Casual, the latest TV series premiering on Sony Channel. Nominated for the 2015 Golden Globe Best TV series – Musical or Comedy, Casual premieres July 2, Sunday at 8.30pm. Casual joins returning series Younger on its 4th season on Sony Channel, also this July.
Casual is an offbeat comedy series that stars Michaela Watkins, Tommy Dewey and Tara Lynne Barr and follows their story of a dysfunctional family with a bachelor brother and his newly divorced sister. Together, they navigate through the crazy world of dating, while living under one roof again and raising a teenager.
The highly anticipated Younger returns for fourth season in July. After a head-spinning cliffhanger in season 3 where Liza Miller (Sutton Foster) suddenly came clean to her work BFF, Kelsey (Hilary Duff), Liza must now deal with the consequences of her lie.
Liza’s love life is also hanging on a thread when Josh (Nico Tortorella) was just about to promise marriage but caught Liza kissing her boss, Charles (Peter Hermann). Are you #TeamJosh or #TeamCharles? Younger returns on July 2, Sundays at 8.00pm on Sony Channel.
