The newest comedy to join the ranks of HBO hit shows past, “Girls” explores the trials, tribultations and triumphs of females in their early twenties.

Created by and starring Lena Dunham (“Tiny Furniture”), as well as co-produced by Judd Apatow, “Girls” incorporates similar themes, but is not to be confused with, Sex & The City.

“I think once you watch the show, you see that the tone is so vastly different [from Sex and the City],” Dunham told Hitfix. “That was always my hope, was that people watch it and the connections sort of fade away because it’s such a clearly different tone… It’s a little bit of a different take on female friendship, I think.”

Dunham admits to comparing “Girls” to the renowned series when tired or lazy, “but with really bad sex, or really awkward sex scenes… And weird parts of the city.”

In addition to Dunham, who plays the quirky lead Hannah, the series stars newcomers Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, and Adam Driver.

“Girls” premieres this Sunday, 15 April on HBO.
