Lena Dunham working on new comedy pilot

Actress/producer Lena Dunham arrives at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Jan. 13, 2013, in Beverly Hills, Calif. Getty

Lena Dunham has a potential new show in the works for HBO.

The creator and star of the award-winning series, "Girls," is working on a pilot about the life and work of a personal shopper in Manhattan, reports Deadline.

Based on Betty Halbreich's memoir, "All Dressed Up and Everywhere to Go," the series would follow the career of Halbreich, a personal shopper for the Bergdorf Goodman department store.

HBO, which previously purchased the rights to the book, has confirmed that Dunham is working on the series -- although a deal hasn't been announced yet.

Halbreich, 85, still heads up her Bergdorf celebrity-heavy personal shopping business, which she started in 1976. Through the years, she has teamed up with the likes of Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker and Glenn Close.

Dunham is working on the new pilot with "Girls" executive producer Jenni Konner, reports Deadline.

Dunham recently confirmed that she'll start filming Season 3 of "Girls" in March. She also has a book of essays coming out.
