Girls’ Jesse Peretz Says the Show Will Shoot in Iowa

3 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Girls might not be allowed on the University of Iowa campus, but the show will still shoot in the state. "We are going to definitely go to Iowa City and we will be shooting some there," Girls director Jesse Peretz told Vulture last night at a screening of Steve Coogan's latest comedy, Alan Partridge. "Even if we can’t shoot on campus, we will shoot around campus. Most of the scenes don’t even take place on campus. So we’ll probably cheat some other campus for the campus. Some of it will be Iowa. A little more than a smidge." Peretz said. "I was sort of shocked because I started working this week and looking at pictures. I went to Iowa City when I was like 20. I had memories, but the actual pictures — it’s not quite as romantic as our Northeast idea of college, and I realized »

Hannah Has Her Most Awful Moment Yet On 'Girls'

17 March 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The article below contains spoilers for "I Saw You," the March 17th, 2014 episode of "Girls." Toward the end of last season, Hannah (Lena Dunham) made a detour into disaster when the largely unheralded Ocd she'd apparently wrestled with when she was younger abruptly returned. But there's been no suddenness to this season's gradual downward turn, which we've been able to see coming from far off, as various forces -- the death of her editor David and subsequent loss of her book, the office day job, Adam's part in the play, relationship-destroying Tony winners and more -- have eroded her sense of confidence and self. Hannah started this year doing so well, and she's looking to end it having made a complete mess of her personal and professional life -- and the worst part about this slow-motion crash is that she seems aware of what's happening, but can't stop herself. That fact gave "I Saw You, »

Directed by Jesse Peretz

In “I Saw You”, the penultimate episode of Girls Season 3, writers Lena Dunham and Paul Simms manage to balance plot and characterization for Girls’ ensemble cast while commenting on the show’s overall themes.

Marnie (Allison Williams) gets to meet one of her art heroes, the photographer Beadie (Louise Lasser) while preparing for a big open mic night with Adam’s cast-mate Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach). Director Jesse Peretz uses timely scene transitions to show how the different “girls” rise and fall. »

Girls 3.10 “Role-Play” takes central relationship to a dark place

10 March 2014 12:19 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Girls Season 3, Episode 10: “Role-Play”

Written by Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow

Directed by Jesse Peretz

Airs Sundays at 10 Pm on HBO

All the tension building up from Adam (Adam Driver) getting a part in a Broadway play to Hannah’s (Lena Dunham) mom’s offhanded comment about “keeping the job, not the guy” last week comes to fruition in “Role Play”. To spice up their relationship, she tries to engage Adam in a role playing session. These scenes are funny, but also sad and show how Adam has developed as a character from the previous seasons. Girls could go the sitcom route with this storyline, but decides to explore its dark implications as Hannah seems unable to deal with a motivated, focused Adam. Dunham and Apatow play Adam and Jessa (Jemima Kirke) as foils again as Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) tries to get her away from Jasper (Richard E. Grant »

Girls’ Andrew Rannells on Elijah’s Nasty Boyfriend, ‘Old-Man Ray,’ and Rehearsing That Choreographed Dance

17 February 2014 11:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

On last night's Girls, Elijah bumps into Hannah on the North Fork of Long Island. The two hug it out, Hannah invites/begs him and his friends to crash Marnie's forced get-together, and there you have it: Elijah is back in the fold, delivering hilarious zingers like "old-man Ray." The one person who doesn't seem to appreciate how great it is to have him around, though, is his nasty boyfriend (Danny Strong) — and, okay, Marnie. We spoke to Andrew Rannells, who plays Elijah (and was Elder Price in The Book of Mormon — pull it together), about his return to the show, Elijah's terrible relationship, and rehearsing that choreographed dance scene. Did you guys shoot the whole episode on the North Fork?We did. We shot the better part of two weeks in the North Fork. And we used the director Jesse Peretz’s house — that was his house that we »

'Girls' Heads to the Beach for a Weekend of 'Healing' That's Anything But

17 February 2014 8:57 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The article below contains spoilers for "Beach House," the February 16th, 2014 episode of "Girls." Just because you're friends with people doesn't mean you can't also hate them. "Beach House," the seventh and strongest episode of the season, was written by the formative "Girls" executive producer team of Judd Apatow, Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, which explains why it has some of the sharpest exchanges in the history of the series. "Girls" has always been stacked with dialogue that's double-edged and that often as not reflects worse on the one saying it, but this episode, helmed by Jesse Peretz, the show's most reliable go-to director, finally saw some open aggression when Hannah (Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) went out to North Fork ("for people who thinks the Hamptons are tacky") for a weekend of sun, beach time and "healing," reuniting with Elijah (Andrew Rannells) in the process. »

Girls 3.07 “Beach House” Lays the Main Characters’ Relationships Bare

16 February 2014 11:00 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Girls, Season 3, Episode 7: “Beach House

Written by Jenni Konner, Lena Dunham, and Judd Apatow

Directed by Jesse Peretz

Airs Sundays at 10 Pm on HBO

Girls continues its focus on character relationships by taking a break from its ongoing plot to show Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet), and Jessa’s (Jemima Kirke) trip to Marnie’s mom’s beach house. Along the way, Elijah (Andrew Rannells) with his new boyfriend Pal (Danny Strong) in tow to add some comic relief and tension to the conflict between the four lead characters. As the characters strip off their clothes (Hannah is in a bikini for most of the episode.), they also expose their wounded psyches and flawed personalities. This episode has its share of hilarious moments, like the previous one, but the humor is counterbalanceed by the conflicts between characters. All their problems are on display from Marnie »

Girls 3.04 “Dead Inside” an intriguing look at characters’ emotions

26 January 2014 10:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Girls, Season 3, Episode 4, “Dead Inside”

Written by Judd Apatow and Lena Dunham

Directed by Jesse Peretz

Airs Sundays at 10pm (Est) on HBO

Like last week’s episode which focused mainly on Hannah’s  (Lena Dunham) 25th birthday party, “Dead Inside” takes another big moment in  her life and uses it as a lens to look at different characters. The moment this episode is the death of Hannah’s editor, David. Her non-reactions to this event shock the majority of her friends and peers, including Adam’s (Adam Driver) crazy sister Caroline (Gaby Hoffmann). As well as exploring Hannah’s self-involvement and lack of emotion, Judd Apatow and Lena Dunham give Marnie (Allison Williams) and Jessa (Jemima Kirke) robust storylines in which they deal with different variants of death. They also continue to give Ray (Alex Karpovsky) good material as he acts as the caustic voice of reason in Girls. »

Allison Williams Warned Paul Simon About Marnie’s ‘What I Am’ Video on Girls

20 January 2014 9:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the 1988 song "What I Am," Edie Brickell says she'd rather choke in shallow water than be the sort of person who tries to find deep meaning in things that are meaningless ("philosophy is the talk on a cereal box / religion is the smile on a dog"). But Girls' Marnie, who we learn shot a video of the song with Charlie before he split, isn't one to pick up on swipes at existentialism. She takes the lyrics — and herself — very seriously. "Marnie’s so misunderstood the meaning of the song," Allison Williams told Vulture earlier this month at the show's season-three premiere. "She’s very confident and also, her first instincts aren’t always right. I think that is a lethal combination: She just thinks she’s right instantly and executes quickly."The video was directed by Jesse Peretz (who also directed the episode) at a warehouse in Long Island City, »

Girls 3.03 “She Said Ok” a solid showcase for Alex Karpovsky

20 January 2014 12:01 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Girls Season 3, Episode 3 “She Said Ok”

Written by Lena Dunham and Jennie Konner

Directed by Jesse Peretz

Airs Sundays at 10 Pm Et on HBO

In “She Said Ok”, writers Lena Dunham and Jennie Konner slam on the brakes after the big Jessa-centric events of the last two episodes and put plot on the backburner. Unfortunately, characterization takes the week off as well. However, this episode offers some interesting insights into Ray’s character as he struggles with managing his own coffee shop and the fallout of his relationship with Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet). The main action of “She Said Ok” involves Hannah’s (Lena Dunham) 25th birthday, and this setting allows an opportunity for a wide variety of character interactions. However, most of the episode is just Hannah prancing around with her parents and Marnie and checking in with various side characters from the previous seasons of Girls. The only parts »
