Lena Dunham is Developing a New HBO Show
1:30 pm, February 1st | by Colette McIntyre
Good news for all you Dunhamaniacs out there: word on the street is Dunham and her Girls co-executive producer Jenni Konner are developing a new series for HBO. I know, “yay!”; now please stop shouting at the table next to mine about how you wish you were a Jessa but you probably contain more Marnie than you’d like to admit. We both know you’re a Shoshanna.
The potential series is based on All Dressed Up With Everywhere To Go, the upcoming memoir from personal shopper and New York icon Betty Halbreich. Halbreich spent decades dressing the rich and famous as Bergdorf Goodman’s personal shopper; her client list is like a “who’s who” of Hollywood, including such big names as Meryl Streep, Katie Couric, and Glenn Close. She’s also consulted for movies and TV shows, including Sarah Jessica Parker’s “Sex and the City.” The 85-year-old brassy Chicago native still runs her personal shopping service, which she started in 1976.
With two Golden Globes, a $3.5 million book deal with Random House, a critically-acclaimed second season of Girls and now a new HBO series all under her belt, Dunham may want to get a bigger pair of shorteralls.
