Iowa Press-Citizen- HBO wanted to bring its hit show “Girls” to the University of Iowa to film Hannah Horvath – who is played by the show’s creator Lena Dunham – attending the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, but UI put a kibosh on the idea.
UI spokesman Tom Moore confirmed university officials were contacted by HBO and denied its request to film episodes on campus. He declined to elaborate.
“We are not discussing this matter any further,” Moore said. If you haven’t heard, the Iowa Writers’ Workshop became part of the plot twist Sunday during the season finale of “Girls,” one of the hottest series on television. Hannah receives a letter about her acceptance into the prestigious program which sets off a lot of excitement among the girls. Word of the denial recently appeared in an article posted on Vulture.com.
Fucking BULLSHIT. This news ruined my day, week, year and life. Why would the University of Iowa turn down HBO’s request to let “Girls” film on campus? Makes zero sense. Too much positive publicity for the program and the University? The show is too popular and loved? Or maybe they’re just dead set on crushing a young blogger’s dream of becoming a full fledged TV star. The fact that the U of I spokesman declined to elaborate really grinds my gears. I want answers and I want them now.
The producer definitely just figured out where Iowa is and pulled the offer
UI doesn’t want horrible fat Lena Dunham naked on campus, shame on you for attempting to raise your standards.
I wish these broads would fall in a corn thresher
Fuck Girls and that hedgehog. Good for you U of I
Leah Dunham, famous for marketing herself as a neurotic slam pig. I want to hate her but I know the bitch does ATM on command so….
Kills me that I actually watched this show weekly before getting dumped by my ex. Can someone let me know if Marnie shows her tits? I realize the show is character-driven and not plot-driven (aka what we call boring in 2014), but it can’t be a good thing when the only suspense in your show is revolves around Marnie’s tits.
who cares? no one.
go write for jezebel trent
trent when will you be hosting the iowa bloggers workshop and how do i RSVP
Now can NYC decline Girls request to tape there?
so edgy! univ of iowa writing program! wow!!!! cant wait for nothing to ever happen on this piece of shit television show
The UIowa administration is full of retards, not surprised in the slightest they’d shoot this down
UI spokesman Tom Moore did state though that if the show Skanks wanted to film at UI, then the university would whole-heartedly welcome them.
Forced to watch it one time by my lady. Horrible. Forced to see Lena Dunwhateverthefuck naked while wanting to see the other one. Beyond mind bottling.
You know you could still do guess that ass or rack right, we all appreciate boobs and coffee but you only post 3-4 blogs a day so a guess that ass at noon would increase pageviews, they could call you trenty pageviews
Fuck those ugly ironical unfunny bitches
You watch “girls” you fucking loser?
Move to a real city
I was an extra on Girls last season, Lena Dunham is as fat and gross as I imagined.
Iowa will survive.
