(Newser) – Lena Dunham's wild success continues: The Girls creator is developing a second series for HBO. Dunham and her Girls co-showrunner, Jenni Konner, are working on a comedy centered around Betty Halbreich, whom Deadline calls a "New York institution ... who has spent decades working with the rich and famous." The 85-year-old Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper (who has dressed the likes of Meryl Streep and Sarah Jessica Parker) wrote a soon-to-be-released memoir, All Dressed Up and Everywhere to Go, on which the show is based. Dunham and Konner will co-write. (Read more Lena Dunham stories.)
