Trailer Released for Judd Apatow’s “Girls” on HBO

Posted on: December 14th, 2011 at 10:19 am by

HBO occupied various Lower East Side locales earlier this year for a pilot dramedy series executive-produced by Judd Apatow entitled Girls. Veritable newcomer Lena Dunham writes and stars in the show, which features some similar plot points as her critically-acclaimed film Tiny Furniture. Indeed, it follows the pursuits and “assorted humiliations” of a sarcastic underemployed twenty-something trying to find her way in the big city.

Last week, the marketing blitz began with the release of the first teaser trailer. Plenty of dead-pan delivery here. Girls premieres on HBO in April 2012.
