Jennifer Garner is returning to television in new half-hour comedy series Camping, which has been greenlighted by HBO with an eight-episode order. Based on the British series created by Julia Davis, the project hails from the Girls duo of creator/executive producers Lena Dunham and executive producer Jenni Konner. Production begins this spring in Los Angeles.
It tells the story Walt’s 45th birthday, which was supposed to be a delightful weekend back to nature, at least according to his obsessively organized and aggressively controlling wife Kathryn. But when the camping trip gathers Kathryn’s meek sister, holier than thou ex-best friend and a free-spirited Tagalong in one place, it becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman on woman crime that won’t soon be forgotten.
