HBO has given a pilot order to the producer of "Freaks and Geeks" and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
The producer is Judd Apatow and the plot of the project follows the humiliations and achievements of a group of 20-something women, the story says. Lena Dunham, 24, will direct, star and co-executive produce the pilot, the article adds.
"With so many young people delaying taking on full-blown adult responsibilities until later in life, there is a lot of attention on today’s twentysomethings and a lot of talk about the 20s becoming a new life stage called by some ’emerging adulthood,’ the story says.
Dunham’s film "Tiny Furniture" won the top prize at this year’s South by Southwest, the story adds.
