We are delighted to have comedy auteur Judd Apatow sit down with his most celebrated protégé, Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO’s Girls. Apatow approached Dunham after seeing her 2010 feature-length debut, Tiny Furniture, to develop her acerbic sensibility into a serialized format. Dunham’s portrayal of modern life in NYC is characterized by her ability to reassemble her characters from disastrous personal and professional decisions, and in many ways Girls is the post-graduate successor to Apatow’s patented television portraits of arrested development (Freaks and Geeks, Undeclared), which never got to see life past their initial seasons. Join us for what is sure to be a fascinating and hilarious discussion between these two collaborators and pop-culture luminaries.
