Lena Dunham is producing and directing a new series for HBO about feminism in the Mad Men era.
According to Variety, the 29-year-old actor and writer will direct the pilot episode of Max, a half-hour comedy series set in 1963 amid the rise of second-wave feminism. The main character, played by Lisa Joyce, is Maxine, 'an enthusiastic, if misguided, low-level magazine employee who stumbles into the forefront of a civil rights movement both she and the world may not be ready for,' reports Deadline Hollywood.
Dunham, the creator of HBO's Girls, is also executive producer on the new series. Another writer and executive producer on Girls, Murray Miller, wrote the pilot episode of Max.
