Girls scene

Lena Dunham (ctr.) and pals Jemima Kirke (l.) and Zosia Mamet make it happen in Girls.

HBO’s wildly popular comedy TV series Girls: Season One became one of the most acclaimed new shows of the spring, 2012 television season, solidifying its creator/star Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) as the comic voice of her generation and garnering an impressive five major Emmy  nominations in the process.

Girls takes a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their early 20s living in the ever-hip New York City borough of Brooklyn. The series follows the lives of Hannah (Dunham), Marnie (Alison Williams, TV’s Will & Kate: Before Happily Ever After), Jessa (Jemima Kirke, Tiny Furniture) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet, TV’s Mad Men) as they try figure out what they want to lives to be in terms of careers, boys, themselves and each other. The answers aren’t always easy, but the search proves to be highly relatable and infinitely amusing.

Co-executive produced by Dunham along with the endlessly busy Judd Apatow (Bridesmaids) and Jenni Konner (Help Me Help You), the television show also features Adam Driver, Chris Abbott and Alex Karpovsky in recurring roles.

Set for release on DVD and as an HBO Select title (featuring Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download) a couple of weeks before the broadcast premiere of Girls: Season Two, the discs contain a healthy assortment of bonus features, including the following:
