Netflix Orders New Lena Dunham Rom-Com


Netflix is developing Too Much, a new romantic comedy series from writer, director, producer and actor Lena Dunham (Girls) and husband Luis Felber.

The series will follow Jessica, a New York workaholic in her mid-thirties, who is reeling from a broken relationship that she thought would last forever. She plans to start a new life of solitude in London but soon meets Felix, with whom she has an unusual connection.

Megan Stalter (Hacks) has been tapped to play the lead role of Jessica, while Will Sharpe (The White Lotus) will play Felix.

Too Much will be produced by Working Title Television, which is part of Universal International Studios, and Dunham’s Good Thing Going. The series will also feature original music from Felber. Production is slated to begin in the U.K. in 2024.

Dunham said: “This is a show that is very close to my heart—created with my husband Luis, cast with my favorite actors, the geniuses that are Meg and Will, along with a bevy of friends—and partnering again with Working Title, who are behind the romantic comedies that formed me. Netflix has been so deeply supportive of the vision, which is to create a romantic comedy that makes us root for love, brings joy but also has the jagged edges of life.”
