TV show description:
This comedic TV show takes a look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of New York girls in their early 20s.
Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham) believes that she has the talent to be a great writer — once she actually writes something. In the meantime, she’s trying to hold down a paying job because her parents have cut her off financially and she’s without a safety net for the first time in her life. Things get further complicated because of her unrequited passion for her pseudo-boyfriend Adam but she’s not sure that she’s ready for something that grown-up.
Marnie Michaels (Allison Williams) is Hannah’s roommate and her best friend. Highly responsible and very put-together, she has a very adult job at a very adult art gallery and a serious, long-term boyfriend — neither of which she can admit she might not even like.
Jessa Johansson (Jemima Kirke) is beautiful, British, and occasional nanny who has traveled to as many different countries as she’s had boyfriends. Back in the Big Apple for the first time in years, she moves in with her cousin Shoshanna and is ready to shake up her friends’ lives.
Shoshanna Shapiro (Zosia Mamet) is Jessa’s younger and bubblier American cousin. A virgin with Sex and the City dreams and Brooklyn nightmares, her friends tend to dismiss her as a suburban innocent, but she consistently proves to be a surprising source of wisdom.
Adam Sackler (Adam Driver) is the guy Hannah sleeps with sometimes — when he decides to answer her texts. He’s an actor-writer-woodworker with a small subsidy from his grandmother and a love of dirty talk (and even dirtier sex). There might be more to him than meets the eye, but it’s going to take Hannah some time to figure it out. Meanwhile, she will continue to show up on his doorstep dressed as a sex witch.
