Judd Apatow HBO Series Scouting the Bowery
HBO is again scouting the Bowery for a new half-hour series currently in pre-production. A lonesome flyer taped in the doorway of 202 Bowery divulges the details.
After a decade working his magic on the big screen, it’s a return to basics for Judd Apatow. A television homecoming. Indeed, HBO tapped the acclaimed writer/director to produce an as-yet-untitled comedy, which will focus on the “assorted humiliations and rare triumphs” of twenty-something women transitioning to adulthood. The pilot was written by 24-year-old Lena Dunham. Location scouts are now seeking a “modern, sizable apartment” to be featured in the show as a studio.
Given Apatow’s underground success with aborted cult classics Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared!, the internets are already abuzz with anticipation.

And on a somewhat-related note, the LES-based How to Make it in America was renewed for a second season last April, so those Haddad’s trailers should be returning to the neighborhood in due course.
