HBO Orders Lena Dunham Pilot to Series

Good news today for Tiny Furniture wunderkind Lena Dunham: Her HBO pilot Girls, produced by Judd Apatow, has been picked up to series. Also, good news for you if you ever wanted to see a version of Sex and the City with younger characters, since that's what the NYC-set Girls has in store: Dunham will play a publishing intern and aspiring writer (the pre-Carrie), and there's also a sexy, hard-charging PR assistant (the pre-Samantha) and a sweet space cadet (the pre-Charlotte).
