Dunham has been signed up by HBO to adapt the fashion Queen's soon-to-be-published memoir All Dressed Up and Everywhere To Go, which follows the life of the now 85-year-old fashion kingpin. According to a spokesperson from the network, the upcoming show will follow the same successful format that has worked so well for the BBC memoir interpretation Call The Midwife, which is based on the diaries of 1950s London midwife Jennifer Worth.
