But even if none of these shows pans out, the most promising is due next year, on cable: HBO’s
Girls, created by the baby-genius 25-year-old Lena Dunham, whose indie film
Tiny Furniture broke at Sundance. I’ve seen the pilot (which, like
Bridesmaids, was co-produced by Judd Apatow), and it made me teary with excitement. Knock wood, it has the potential to be the Great Lady Hope of HBO.
