The latest breakout comedy series from HBO® - Girls® - debuts on home entertainment this winter, just in time for holiday gift giving and a few weeks before the premiere of season two.

Girls was nominated for five 2012 Emmy® Awards: Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress (Dunham), Outstanding Directing (Dunham), Outstanding Writing (Dunham) and Outstanding Casting. Hailed as "brilliant...perfect" (People Magazine) and "a revelation...hilarious" (New York Magazine), the series follows the lives of four twenty something's - Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna - who are trying to figure life out. They've been living in New York for a couple of years, but they're still not sure what they want - from boys, from each other, from themselves. And things aren't getting any clearer. The answers aren't always easy, but the search is profoundly relatable and infinitely amusing.
