Fear not Girls fans, this does not mean the end of that hit show, which has already been renewed for another two seasons, but rather a new project for Dunham to sink her teeth into. The writer/director has had a pilot ordered by HBO for a new comedy series which is set to be about 1960s feminists.
The pilot is said to be directed by Dunham and written by fellow Girls writer and executive producer Murray Miller. While the pair will also work on the production team alongside Girls showrunner Jenni Konner and executive producer Ilene Landress.
The show, called Max, will follow an up-and-coming magazine writer who inadvertently finds herself involved in the second-wave feminism movement of the 1960s. Actress Lisa Joyce will take the lead, who you may have previously seen in supporting roles in Boardwalk Empire and The Good Wife.
If it gets picked up (which we can only assume it will) it will be Dunham's second regular series with HBO while also joining an ever-growing list of female lead-driven comedies for HBO, including Girls, Emily Mortimer's Doll & Em, Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Veep, and Lisa Kudrow's The Comeback.
