Lena Dunham, whose TV show Girls people really love to argue about, has had a second show optioned by HBO. People are comparing the show to The Devil’s Wear Prada. Here are the details, per Deadline:
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.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say I don’t think this is going to slow the criticisms of Dunham as a privileged white person writing exclusively about privileged white people.
