Lena Dunham, Judd Apatow, Jenni Konner, Ilene S. Landress And Bruce Eric Kaplan Executive Produce

Hannah is seeing a new guy, but still feels responsible for Adam, her bed-ridden ex, as he recovers from the fateful accident that ended season one. Disappointed at work, the recently single Marnie needs the support of her best friend and former roommate, yet the distance between them seems greater than ever.

Landress and Bruce Eric Kaplan executive produce the show, which kicks off its ten-episode second season SUNDAY, JAN. 13 (9:00-9:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, followed by the season premiere of the Golden Globe-winning comedy series "Enlightened."
