David Tennant and Jennifer Garner Are Starring In Lena Dunham's New Series, and That's Weird

When you think of Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, the exec producers behind HBO’s Girls, a lot of thoughts might spring to mind: Voice of a generation, nepotism, whitewashing, that analingus scene, the time that Adam peed on Hannah, the time that Dunham said that she wished she had had an abortion.

One thing that doesn’t immediately spring to mind is Doctor Who or Sydney Bristow, and yet, here were are, learning that David Tennant and Jennifer Garner will topline the next series from Dunham and Konner. It’s called Camping, a half-hour comedy that will air on HBO. From Deadline:

Camping centers on Walt (Tennant), whose 45th birthday was supposed to be a delightful weekend back to nature, at least according to his obsessively organized and aggressively controlling wife Kathryn (Garner). But when the camping trip gathers Kathryn’s meek sister, holier than thou ex-best friend and a free-spirited Tagalong in one place, it becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman-on-woman crime that won’t soon be forgotten. Plus, bears.

Honestly, the only thing that makes sense in this context is the bears.

Tennant will soon be out on Amazon’s Good Omens, and Garner can currently be seen in theaters in Love, Simon. She’s also set to star in Pierre Morel’s Peppermint, which sounds like Atomic Blond plus Taken.
