Lena Dunham is working on a new HBO comedy about 1960s feminism

If Girls does end after series six, this might ease the mourning process for fans

Lena Dunham has written a new HBO comedy pilot called Max, about a magazine writer who accidentally stumbles into the feminist movement in the 1960s. 


The actress, author, screenwriter, producer, and director (yes, she does a lot) has said she plans for Girls to end after its sixth series, so this could well fill that gap for fans of the show.


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Boardwalk Empire’s Lisa Joyce will play heroine Maxine. Dunham will direct the show, Girls writer-producer Murray Miller will write the script, and fellow Girls team members Jenni Konner and Ilene Landress will executive produce it.
