Develops Pilot

31 Jan, 2013

Dunham and Jenni Konner plan to develop a comedy series on HBO based on the life of personal shopper Betty Halbreich. The duo have been tasked to write the pilot for the show. HBO has not officially announced the show but it has confirmed that Dunham and Konner will work to adapt Halbreich’s memoir All Dressed Up and Everywhere to Go. Halbreich made a name for herself working as a career shopper at Bergdorf Goodman, buying clothes for rich Manhattanites. Halbreich:

We’re holding on, until the (my) book comes out. And she has a book coming out right after me! I will tell you something: I adore her as a human being. We are, if nothing comes of this, we’re very attached at the hip.
