Get ready for another, more old-timey, show from Lena Dunham

Betty Halbreich, Bergdorf Goodman stylist to the stars, wrote a book and Lena Dunham optioned it. It's slated to be a comedy set in the 70's about the store, the woman and the celebrities she dressed. We're picturing That 70's Show meets Mad Men meets, of course, Girls. It's an interesting move for Dunham and her Girls co-showrunner Jenni Konner because there's more escapism in this project. Dunham's built a foundation on the gritty realism of modern coming-of-age stories and Betty Halbreich's life doesn't fall in line. Knowing Dunham and Konner, however, they won't shy away from getting their, or Betty's, hands dirty.
