This New HBO Show Starring Jennifer Garner Belongs on Your Watch List

Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, the writing and producing duo behind Girls, have found themselves at the helm of another HBO series. This time, they've traded in the streets of Manhattan for the great outdoors, and instead of focusing on the millennial experience, they're delving into the lives of a mix-matched crew of middle-aged adults.

Aptly named Camping, the comedy follows a group of friends and frenemies as they embark on a birthday camping trip. It's based on the British series of the same name and stars Jennifer Garner, David Tennant, Juliette Lewis, Ione Skye, Brett Gelman, Arturo Del Puerto, and Bridget Everett. While it's a far cry from Girls, the show certainly packs a good helping of Dunham and Konner's signature cringe-worthy plot lines and complicated characters. 

"We always say, 'We don't need the characters to be likable, but we want them to be relatable,'" Konner tells MyDomaine. While she and Dunham haven't exactly created the type of characters you'd like to spend extended periods of time with, they explore the power relationships have to endure, the manifestation of chronic pain, and the repercussions of what happens between old friends when there's nowhere to hide.
