In a move only slightly less surprising than Girls getting picked up for a third season, HBO has given Lena Dunham the greenlight to develop a second series – also set in New York City — for the cable network.
The 26-year-old writer, star and producer will join forces with Girls co-executive producer Jenni Konner to pitch a show based on All Dressed Up and Everywhere to Go, the forthcoming memoir by Betty Halbreich, famed personal shopper for Bergdorf Goodman, reports Deadline, who summed up the fashion icon’s life:
At age 85, Halbreich is still running her Bergdorf-based personal shopping service, which she launched in 1976. She has been the dresser and confidante of three generations of Manhattan socialites and stars including Joan Rivers, Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katie Couric and Glenn Close. Additionally, she works with top Manhattan stylists and has consulted for movies and TV shows, including helping design the signature look for HBO’s Sex And The City and capture the New York style of the early Woody Allen films.
So, do you think HBO will ultimately pick up the series? Are you happy that there’s a potential second Lena Dunham-helmed show on the way? Tell us in the comments section.
