Lena Dunham is working again with HBO, the channel that aired her breakthrough series, “Girls.” She is joining the drama series “Industry” as an executive producer and director; no word yet on whether she’ll appear on screen.

The series is about a group of twentysomethings breaking into the world of international finance, and it was created and written by Konrad Kay and Mickey Down (“Gregor”). It’s set in London, and it will be filmed in Wales this summer. The story line will contain plenty of messy relationships, as the ambitious young execs start buying into the company culture of sex, drugs, and egos.
