Lena Dunham’s 2007 Web Series About A House Full of Horny Art Students Has Been Unearthed

03/13/2012 9:51 AM |


“Budding sexuality” isn’t a topic unfamiliar to Lena Dunham, creator of the upcoming HBO series, Girls and 2010 film, Tiny Furniture. In 2007, Dunham directed a web series called Tight Shots exclusively for Nerve.com that dealt with a house full of art students working on a film project and eventually sleeping together.

The project the series’ characters are working on is about a young Southern girl discovering her sexuality, but of course director Lena (played by Dunham) has never been to the South. From the looks of the first episode, which Nerve unearthed and posted this morning, it’s got all the hallmarks of Dunham’s sense of humor—wry, self-deprecating, bawdy and terrifically awkward. It even stars a younger Audrey Gelman, now known as Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer’s star press secretary. Nerve’s going to be leaking the full series on Tuesdays and Thursdays in anticipation of Girls‘ April 15 premiere, so if you like what you see, head here later for more.

  • Please check out the teaser for a new web series that I think will appeal to my fellow Lena Dunham fans. “Anna Danova” is about a neurotic indie musician awkwardly negotiating her way through a relationship one misstep at a time. She finds her footing by breaking into overly truthful songs in inappropriate moments. Please watch the teaser and share:
