HBO’s sad-sack series “Girls,” created, produced, directed, written by and starring Brooklyn Heights resident Lena Dunham, has been renewed for a 10-episode second season. The show revolves around the lives of four 20-somethings navigating love, life and careers in New York City post-college. Judd Apatow is an executive producer.
“Girls” debuted April 15 on the premium network, and has averaged 3.8 million viewers, per HBO.
Dunham grew up in and recently relocated back to Brooklyn Heights. As BHB reported in April, the 25 year old was raised in Soho, Brooklyn Heights and Tribeca, and attended St. Ann’s School in the Heights. Her mother is photographer and artist Laurie Simmons and her father is renowned painter Carroll Dunham.
