Earlier this year, it was reported that David Simon — the man behind "The Wire" and "Treme" — was writing an HBO miniseries biopic about Martin Luther King Jr. Whether that project is still going or perhaps shifted directions is unclear, but Simon has a new project coming on HBO, with similar thematic matter, and it sounds great.

Girls
This weekend, the third season of "Girls" kicks off with two brand new episodes, and while you'll get our full recaps on Monday, we'll just say this: Lena Dunham hasn't missed a step. If you've been a fan of the show, you won't be disappointed, but it seems some folks still can't get their head around Dunham's unapologetic depictions of nudity and sex.

Allison Williams, Fantastic Four
Say what you will about "Girls" -- and people have no shortage of opinions on Lena Dunham's show -- the cast is pretty much uniformly excellent (Zosia Mamet forever) and one of those standouts is Allison Williams. Initially seen as the clean cut, rational and polar opposite to Hannah, the character of Marnie has gone a fascinating journey, particularly as the less savoury aspects of her personality have come to light. Talented, and yes, attractive as well, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood came knocking, and could she be making the leap to the tentpole world for one of her first feature film roles?

Here we go again. Let's cue up the Criterion Collection whiners about "Tiny Furniture" or those others who feel Lena Dunham hasn't paid whatever ephemeral dues she needs to in order to qualify for the acclaim she has earned thus far at the age of 26. Haters gonna hate, but frankly Dunham is doing just fine without those folks, and less than a year after "Girls" made a serious splash on HBO, season 2 is on the way.

How many women does it take to greenlight a movie about folk legends Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon and Carole King? Well, more than one at any rate as the developing biopic "Girls Like Us" continues moving at Sony. Back in the spring Taylor Swift and Alison Pill were contending for the parts of Mitchell and King, and while the former seems to have gone through, the latter is facing some competition, as more actresses line up to play Simon. And it's a pretty strong list of talent in the mix.
