Great news. HBO Entertainment has renewed two half-hour comedies targeted at women for second seasons. The commitment for Lena Dunham's 'Girls' is for ten episodes. The show has a gross audience to date of 3.8 million viewers. Produced by show creator Dunham, Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, the hilariously candid and sometimes shocking fly-on-the-wall show is about four 20-something women trying to make it in New York City. Dunham leads the ensemble.

Also renewed for ten episodes is "In the Loop" writer-director Armando Iannucci's free-wheeling D.C. comedy "Veep," starring Julia Louis- Dreyfuss ("Seinfeld") as the vice president. The show has a gross audience to date of 3.7 million viewers. Produced by show creator Iannucci, Christopher Godsick and Frank Rich, the show takes a caustic and hysterical look at behind-the-scenes goings-on in the White House.
