Girls creator Lena Dunham is expanding her TV credentials by signing up to write a new show based on the memoirs of a stylist to the stars.
Dunham, who writes, stars in and directs Girls, will re-team with the show's executive producer Jenni Konner to produce another programme for America's HBO network, based on All Dressed Up And Everywhere To Go, according to Deadline.com.
The book's author, Betty Halbreich, has spent years as a personal shopper for famed New York department store Bergdorf Goodman and has dressed stars including Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker and Glenn Close, and has also worked on Sex and the City and several Woody Allen films.
Girls has won critical acclaim for 26-year-old Dunham, as well as two Golden Globe Awards.
