Girls (TV Series 2012– ) Poster

(2012– )


The template for the series can be found in Lena Dunham's self-financed, 2010 indy film Tiny Furniture (2010), which also featured "Girls" cast members Alex Karpovsky and Jemima Kirke.
Marnie is based upon Audrey Gelman, Lena Dunham's real-life best friend.
The four main characters' names are all alliterative (Hannah Horvath, Marnie Michaels, Shoshanna Shapiro and Jessa Johansson).
As of the premiere of the third season, the first episode of every season has opened with a shot of Hannah lying in bed with another character.
Brian Williams occasionally shows up in the sets to watch his daughter Allison Williams (Marnie) film her scenes.
Judd Apatow stated he hoped the show would provide men with an insight into "realistic females".
Jemima Kirke had to be convinced by Lena Dunham to take the role of Jessa.
The fourth season was green-light two days before premiere of the third season.
After facing criticism in the media over the all white cast and lack of ethnic diversity in the first season of the show, creator Lena Dunham created a role specifically for Donald Glover.
The celebrity connections of actors and members of the creative team of Girls (2012) continue to expand: the cast includes the daughters of David Mamet, Brian Williams and Simon Kirke, the composer is Sean Penn's brother and three episodes have been directed by the son of publisher Martin Peretz. In addition, actress Audrey Gelman, who's been featured in two episodes, is a former press aide to Hillary Rodham Clinton who now serves as the press officer for Manhattan's Borough President.
The song used in the trailer for the third season is "Ways to Go" by Grouplove.
