On Friday, Lena Dunham and Girls showrunner Jenni Konner revealed they’re already working on a new television show.
In an interview with People at the second-anniversary celebration of Lenny Letter, Dunham revealed she’s writing a new TV show. “We can’t say anything right now except that you’ll definitely see some more awkward situations and people showing their darker selves,” she said.
But that’s not all the two women have up their sleeves in terms of new projects. In addition to a new movie coming out on HBO next month, Konner said “we’re working on a doc series based on Lenny for HBO as well. But that’s different than the TV show.”
“That’s different from the TV project and that’s different than the movie that’s airing next month,” Dunham added. “So we’re feeling lucky and busy.”
Last year, Dunham told The Hollywood Reporter that she wanted Lenny “to be a part of something that gives opportunities.” At the time she was in negotiations with HBO to create “a series of 22-minute short films written and directed by women.” She was also working on Max, a 1960s-set feminism comedy pilot starring Zoe Kazan. No word yet if either of these projects is what she’s teasing.
One thing we do know is Dunham is playing Valerie Solanas on AHS: Cult. She’s the very real woman who gained infamy after attempting to assassinate Andy Warhol. Solanas also wrote S.C.U.M., a manifesto that encouraged women to kill all men. Like Dunham’s upcoming project, AHS is likely to get awkward once she makes her debut.
