- Season 1 of the Emmy®-winning comedy series Girls, Executive Produced by Dunham, Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, Premieres on CosmoTV
"For its rawness and naturalism, Girls is utter innovation, and that's why Dunham is entertainer of the year and Girls is the best show of 2012." - John Doyle, Globe and Mail
"Everything about Girls feels spot-on, which doesn't come as a surprise since it occupies a rare space as a series about twenty something girls created by a twenty something girl." - Scott Stinson, National Post
