Hollywood Prospectus Podcast: Girls Co-Showrunner Jenni Konner

Jenni Konner and GirlsJenni Konner is the woman behind the Girls. As the co-showrunner of the HBO hit, she’s the industry Jedi to Lena Dunham’s eager padawan. In advance of Sunday’s second-season premiere, Konner joined me in a Manhattan studio to discuss her memories of life as a twentysomething in New York City, her experiences working with Judd Apatow (on everything from the late, lamented Undeclared to This Is 40), and all of the things that make Girls great. (Hint: Only some of them involve nudity.)
