‘Girls’ Creator Lena Dunham Working On A New HBO Comedy
The home of Lena Dunham’s Girls looks to have a new roommate in the form of a new comedy concept for HBO.
The two-time Golden Globes winner has optioned a memoir from fashion insider Betty Halbreich called “All Dressed Up and Everywhere To Go,” about Halbreich’s work as a personal shopper at Bergdorf Goodman.
According to Deadline, the Girls creator/exective producer/star is on deck to write a show based on the book, which aims to inspire women from a variety of backgrounds and give a look inside the world of high fashion. HBO has already purchased the rights to the book, but has yet to announce the deal.
Dunham will work on the new pilot with fellow Girls executive producer Jenni Jonner.
At 85-years-old, Halbreich continues to provide her personal shopping service, where she’s served some of New York’s elite as well as famous names like Meryl Streep, Glenn Close and Sarah Jessica Parker. The Chicago-born personal shopper has been described as “part Angela Lansbury and part Lucille Ball.”
For those who cannot wait to see Lena Dunham on the small screen, the award winning Hollywood upstart recently confirmed that she’ll start filming Season 3 of Girls in March.
