HBO Renews ‘Girls,’ ‘Veep’

Well, that was fast! HBO has renewed the comedies Girls and Veep for 10-show second seasons after both made their series debuts in the last two weeks. Girls, which was created by Lena Dunham, has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics. Reviewers were less enthused about Veep, but star Julia Louis-Dreyfus nevertheless brought the channel more viewers than Girls has so far.
