Lena Dunham Gets New Show Picked Up Hired to Write Pilot, Is Slowly Taking Over HBO

Good news for the entirety of the internet, which it turns out is an entity solely supported by people arguing about "Girls": HBO has picked up another show to be helmed by Lena Dunham hired Dunham to write a new pilot. It's called "Harlem," and will see Dunham profiling the lives of those in New York City's worst projects in a show that insiders are likening to "The Wire." Just kidding.

Lena Dunham, creator/star/executive producer of hot comedy Girls, has teamed with her Girls co-showrunner, executive producer Jenni Konner, for another potential HBO comedy series set in New York. The pay cable network has optioned All Dressed Up And Everywhere To Go, the upcoming memoir by long-time Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper and New York institution Betty Halbreich. Dunham and Konner plan to write together the TV project, which will delve into the life of Halbreich who has spent decades working with the rich and famous.

So, basically "The Devil Wears Prada" on television? Sounds about right. Dunham probably loves that movie, as she should, because it's a great movie. Halbreich has been a personal shopper for various movie stars with no time to shop and New York City socialites with nothing to do but shop (and take cocaine).

There's been no timetable set for Dunham's new vehicle, which will also be executive produced by shadow male Judd Apatow. "Girls" itself has already been renewed for a third season, which means that Dunham will soon rule the world even if no one really watches her show.
