Lena Dunham, the actress, writer and producer who created and starred in HBO’s “Girls,” has just launched a new production company. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the launch of Good Thing Going comes a year after Dunham split with former producing partner Jenni Konner.
THR notes that Good Thing Going already has a slate of film, TV, theater and podcast projects set up, while Dunham continues to have a first-look deal in place at HBO.
In a statement released today, Dunham said: “As a producer, my only goal is to give other artists the chance to be as noisy and honest as I’ve been. I’m firmly of the [belief] that we grow together when we allow each other to be as messy and complex in our art as we are in our lives. I’m so excited to be leading Good Thing Going with a group of close collaborators who share my hunger for getting hooked on new voices and perspectives.”
THR adds: “Based in New York, Good Thing Going is led by Dunham’s manager Michael P. Cohen, who serves as president of the company. Liz Watson serves as head of development and production (and will be based in New York and the U.K.); Marissa Diaz will serve as head of development and production (and be based in Los Angeles); and Soham Joglekar will serve as the New York-based development coordinator.”
