It's been revealed that the next show to be created by Lena Dunham will be set in the 1960s, and will be centred particularly on the feminist movement of the decade. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show's pilot has been sold to HBO.

Writer-producer Murray Miller, and producers Jenni Konner and Illene Landress – Dunham's collaborators on Girls – are also working on the new project.

Aside from the title, Max, and the plot, which focuses on a magazine writer called Maxine Woodruff who "stumbles into the women's movement during second wave feminism," not much else is known about the new series.

As for Girls, Dunham recently admitted that season 6 would "probably" be the show's last one.
