Girls Lena Dunham Zosia Mamet Jemima Kirke Allison Williams
To be young, neurotic, creative and adrift in New York City... Those are just a few flavors of the lives of single young women that Lena Dunham brings to the small screen in "Girls," her much discussed semi-controversial HBO show. And while some have christened the program as the new "Sex & The City," Dunham has pushed way beyond any boundaries set by that show.

Martin Scorsese is no stranger to the thugs, hoods, kingpins and lowlives that keep things hustling on the streets, and he's chronicled that world more than once on the big screen. In fact, next week sees him in delving into the bacchanalia of the financial sector, with the very debauched, very R-rated "The Wolf Of Wall Street" (read our review). But as folks know, the ever busy director, in addition to his continually growing filmography (check out our complete retrospective of his work) has also got a growing slate on TV. At the top of the pile of "Boardwalk Empire," but you might be surprised to learn that Scorsese didn't quite cotton to HBO's gangland predecessor.

Ready for some new old news? Here we go: Way back in 2010, The Weinstein Company and Miramax announced a deal that would find TWC putting into production sequels for some of the biggest movies from the studio they once started, as well as developing television offshoots too.
