New series created by and starring Lena Dunham ("Tiny Furniture") looks to be a sort of toned-down "Sex and the City." It concerns a group of New York girls in their early 20s. The cast also includes Jemima Kirke, Allison Williams, Adam Driver and Zosia Mamet. Dunham wrote and directed the pilot. Premieres 10:30 p.m. Sunday on HBO (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
