Being dubbed the younger, not-so-glamorous Sex and The City for ‘real’ girls, Girls (which premiers tomorrow night on HBO) is a show about what it’s really like to be in your twenty’s in our world. The show is set in New York and primarily follows the cast of four friends who are trying to navigate that excruciatingly difficult find-yourself time; the post college years.
What excites me most is that it was written, directed and created by 26 year old Lena Dunham (below, right), who also stars in the show as Hannah. PLUS it’s produced by Judd Apatow
I don’t know about you, but my twenty’s were weird, and if you’re still in them, I can only imagine how much stranger they have gotten with our obsession with everything ‘Social media’. It’s refreshing to see a new show coming out that is willing to dig a little deeper, I just wonder how ready the audience is to watch something that’s main focus isn’t Manolos…
Girls premiers April 15th at 10:30 on HBO
