Cosmo Girl Helen Gurley Brown Getting Movie Makeover At Fox 2000

19 November 2014 11:52 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Fox 2000 will tell the story of the trailblazing rise of Helen Gurley Brown, who became one of the first female editors of a national magazine when she took the reins at Cosmopolitan in 1965. The studio has optioned Enter Helen: The Rise And Reign Of The Original Cosmo Girl, the upcoming book by Brooke Hauser that HarperCollins will publish next year. Chernin Entertainment will produce, and Marisa Paiva is overseeing for the studio.

I’m picturing Mad Men, except with a ballsy woman who thrives in a male-dominated world, her currency a legion of women ready to rebel against the housewife stereotype in search of careers and sexual freedom. The story begins in the early ’60s when she wrote the blockbuster book Sex And The Single Girl and then took the top job at the then-floundering Cosmo. She remade the magazine, and in doing so, helped changed the perception to »

Lena Dunham's 'Not That Kind of Girl': What the Critics Are Saying

24 September 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It's "the voice of a generation," from cover to cover — Lena Dunham's highly anticipated memoir, Not That Kind of Girl, hits bookstores Sept. 30 as an advice guide for today's young women, or her update of Helen Gurley Brown's Having It All. (Read an excerpt via The New Yorker, which ran a chapter of Dunham's therapy-related memories earlier this month.) As one of the buzziest — and priciest — book deals in recent memory, Not That Kind of Girl was optioned by Random House in Oct. 2012 for a reported $3.7 million after a 66-page proposal

Christina Hendricks, Aaron Paul, Allison Williams: The Power of Strong Supporting Roles

17 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Actors dream of landing that one role that ignites a career.

Even if it’s not quite the “42nd Street” fantasy of instantaneous stardom for the understudy, a supporting role on a TV series can be an important stepping stone, especially if the show is a critical and/or commercial success. And in rare instances, the magic of being in the right supporting role on the right show at the right time can propel a player who’s the second (or third) banana into full-fledged stardom, the kind that inspires Internet parodies, Halloween costumes and social-media shrines.

Such was the case for three actors who rocketed from virtual obscurity, through scene-stealing supporting roles, to become likely contenders in this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards derby. Christina Hendricks made Joan a force to be reckoned with during the pilot shoot for “Mad Men.” Aaron Paul saved the life of Jesse Pinkman »

Power of Women: New York Continues to Incubate Trailblazing Women of Entertainment

22 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When you think of the brilliant, bad-ass women in entertainment and media in New York, it’s hard to know where their quirky genius begins and the city ends. From Clare Boothe Luce to Helen Gurley Brown, from Gloria Steinem to Barbara Walters, Gilda Radner to Diane Keaton, Diane Sawyer, Patti Smith, Whoopi Goldberg, Nora Ephron, Tina Brown, Annie Leibovitz and Lena Dunham (not to mention the new top editor at the New York Times, Jill Abramson), women in New York are not like anyone else, including each other: They’re razor-sharp, with unique voices and an outlying vision that enter the mainstream and tug it away from the lowest common denominator and toward something smarter, funnier, more tolerant, more knowing, better.

“It’s in the water,” says maverick ICM literary agent Esther Newberg. “Shirley Chisholm ran for president. We had a black mayor early (David Dinkins, 1990-2003). This neck »

Lena Dunham Unveils Book Cover and Release Date

10 February 2014 11:01 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Lena Dunham can add now officially add author to her growing list of job titles. On Monday, the Girls mastermind posted to Instagram a photo of herself proudly clutching a copy of her first book, Not That Kind of Girl. Taking its inspiration from feminist field guides like Helen Gurley Brown's Having It All, Not That Kind of Girl bills itself as an irreverent hybrid of memoir and advice book, in which Dunham "tells you what she's 'learned,'" according to the book's strategically scare-quoted subtitle. The cover features large type in black and fuchsia -- a nod to book jacket designs of the '60s and
