Lena Dunham Develops New HBO Series, Covers EW

Lena Dunham’s empire continues to blow the lid off pop culture, as she covers the February 8, 2013 Entertainment Weekly with the headline, “How (She) Became the Voice Of A Generation.” Add that to the news that the “Girls” creator and Brooklyn Heights rez will pen a new pilot for HBO based on the upcoming memoir “All Dressed Up And Everywhere To Go,” by legendary Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper Betty Halbreich. Entertainment Weekly reports that “while there’s no word on whether show’s portrayal of the now 85-year-old Halbreich—once described as ‘part Angela Lansbury and part Lucille Ball’—will be more Golden Girls than Girls, it’s safe to assume the wardrobe will include plenty of designer labels.”

Dunham will work on the project with her “Girls” co-showrunner, Jenni Konner.

    …and I’m done. Nothing to see here folks. This is just a Lena Dunham fan site now.

    Lol, why does it bother you so much that the blog covers the successes of one of our residents? If you are not interested why read and then post a comment? You’re not an ex-boyfriend that she dumped by any chance are you?

    Jealousy ain’t pretty!

    Geez, I’m hoping that if Lena plays Betty the Berdorf Shopper, her teensy twin towers will be more covered up (tastefully). Phew!

    Does she really live in the Heights? Does anyone know where? Has anyone seen her?

    Actually, it used to be the Paul Giamatti fan site.
    This is a refreshing departure.

    the premise of the new show seems interesting and fresh. looking forward to it. it’s nice for a community blog to support fellow members of its community who are doing well and making folks’ happy. I think that’s part of living in a community. I take some credit for ms. dunham’s success knowing my mere presence in the neighborhood might have somehow played a role, however insignificant, in influencing her creativity and desire to write.

    She is a no talent frump. If she was good looking everyone would be bashing her shameless expoitation of skin. But since she is not good looking, the critics champion her bravery for showing her dough blobs. She looks like the pillsbury dough girl. And btw , the show stinks
