Veep, Girls, HBO
HBO has renewed the comedy series "Girls" and "Veep" for second seasons, to include 10 episodes each.
GIRLS: Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna are trying to figure life out. They've been living in New York for a couple of years, but they're still not sure what they want - from boys, from each other, from themselves. And things aren't getting any clearer. Created by and starring Lena Dunham ("Tiny Furniture"), GIRLS takes a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their early 20s.
