'Girls' creator Lena Dunham to pen new comedy

After she picked up two Golden Globes for the network in January, Lena Dunham is eyeing a new comedy concept for HBO.

According to Deadline, the home of Dunham's "Girls" has optioned a memoir from fashion insider Betty Halbreich called "All Dressed Up and Everywhere To Go," about Halbreich's work as a personal shopper at Bergdorf Goodman.

"Girls" creator/executive producer/star Dunham is on deck to write a show based on the book, which aims to inspire women from a variety of backgrounds and give a look inside the world of high fashion, along with fellow "Girls" EP Jenni Konner.

At 85, Halbreich is still providing her personal shopping service, where she's served some of New York's elite as well as famous names like Meryl Streep, Glenn Close and Sarah Jessica Parker. Halbreich, who hails from Chicago, has been described as "part Angela Lansbury and part Lucille Ball." The TV concept from Konner and Dunham would focus on her life as a personal shopper.

    I have noticed that my phone posts in blue from my phone. Since December I have thought it was just normal. I am not s troll in any form. Just making a comment so maybe the kids will stop playing. I am not sure what they get out of
    it. I do not respond to it. If you use a name. Stick to it. Even though this is foreign to me. I still like most jovial posts on here. Most are pleasant with the acceptance of poop and rudeness.

    Trolls are easy to spot. They have blue names.

    I wonder if she likes bacon. Bacon sandwiches are maybe the best.

      I see the troll doing his best impersonation of some ladies who left. Here's a little trolling tip, you need to spell their names like they did. Not that any of them would say stupid garbage like that, either. You fail in trolling.
