LENA DUNHAM LANDS AT BISCUIT FILMWORKS.
4 October 2023

Biscuit Filmworks have completed the signing of Lena Dunham for representation in the UK, the US, and the Netherlands. Perhaps best known as the creator and star of 'Girls', Dunham has also directed feature films like 'Tiny Furniture', 'Sharp Stick', and 'Catherine Called Birdy'.

She now has the opportunity to flex her muscles in advertising, and it'll certainly be interesting to see what happens next. As Biscuit co-founder Shawn Lacy puts it, "We love how Lena's creative mind works and we couldn't be more excited to see how her talents translate to our space."



UK managing director Rupert Reynolds-MacLean is equally effusive: "Lena is someone who has shaped culture. 'Girls' inspired a generation of people to tell their stories in an honest and genre-defining way. Her work as a director, writer, and actor is unparalleled and continues to push the boundaries while mastering her craft."

"She opened the door for so many other filmmakers and artists who might otherwise have been lost to another medium," adds Reynolds-MacLean. "She is passionate about bringing her wealth of experience to the commercial world and partnering with clients and agencies to make great work. We're thrilled to join forces with her at Biscuit."
