Lena Dunham Works on New Show for HBO
Another project from Lena Dunham is about to grace the small screen. The "Girls" creator and actress is teaming up with her co-showrunner and executive producer Jenni Konner to write a pilot for HBO.
The potential new show is set in New York. It is based on "All Dressed Up With Everywhere to Go", an upcoming memoir by Betty Halbreich, who is a longtime personal shopper and celebrity stylist based at the tony Bergdorf Goodman department store.
The story will revolve around the life of Halbreich, whose clients include such famous stars as Joan Rivers, Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katie Couric and Glenn Close. The 85-year-old New Yorker is still running her Bergdorf-based personal shopping service, which launched in 1976.
Halbreich has previously consulted on aesthetics for Woody Allen's films and HBO's "Sex and the City". According to Deadline, her memoir is promised to provide behind the scenes of the world of high fashion, as well as inspiration for women from all backgrounds.
Dunham will begin working on "Girls" season 3 at the end of March after HBO confirmed the show's renewal. She recently won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in Television Series Musical or Comedy through her role in the critically-acclaimed series.
