Lena Dunham is set to set to direct a new HBO show, Max, which will be set in the magazine industry in 1963. It will carry themes of second-wave feminism, and actress Lisa Joyce is set to star as a young magazine writer. Joyce has had parts in Boardwalk Empire and The Good Wife, but this will be her first leading role. The pilot was written by Murray Miller, a writer and executive producer on Girls. Jenni Konner and Ilene Landress, also writers and producers on Girls, will be joining the team for the new show. Sounds like a formidable team, and an easy approval by HBO.
