You might say Lena Dunham is having a moment. Fresh off her Golden Globe triumph, the “Girls” creator is getting rave reviews for the second season of her HBO show, working on her first book and, oh yeah, developing a second show for HBO.
The 26-year-old actress/director/screenwriter has hooked up with her “Girls” executive producer Jenni Konner for another potential HBO series set in New York, according to Deadline Hollywood.
HBO has optioned the upcoming memoir “All Dressed Up and Everywhere to Go” from long-time Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper and New York icon Betty Halbreich. Dunham and Konner are planning on writing the pilot together, examining the life of the 85-year-old fashion consultant.
Halbreich still runs her personal shopping service, which she started in 1976. Over the years she’s catered to everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker and Meryl Streep to Katie Couric. She’s also consulted for movies and TV Shows, including Parker’s “Sex and the City” and the book is said to provide a behind-the-scenes look into the world of high fashion as seen through the eyes of the quick-witted Chicago native.
The second HBO gig is the latest project on Dunham’s crowded plate, which already includes a recently signed $3.5 million deal with Random House to publish her first book, a collection of essays entitled “Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned.”
