Lena Dunham Develops New HBO Series, Covers EW

February 1, 2013

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.
