Camping - Comedy Starring Jennifer Garner from Lena Dunham Ordered to Series by HBO

Share on Reddit

Jennifer Garner is returning to the small screen.

The Alias grad has been tapped to star in Camping, HBO's eight-episode, straight-to-series comedy from Girls duo Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner. Camping is described as a limited series. Production will begin in the spring in L.A.

Written and exec produced by Dunham and Konner, the series revolves around Kathryn, who will be played by Garner in her first TV role since Alias wrapped its five-season run on ABC in 2006. The series kicks off on Walt's (uncast) 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. Plus, bears.

Garner's Kathryn Siddell-Bauers is described as a controlling L.A. mom who is far less cheerful than her Lululemons imply. She controls the proceedings with an iron grip until she's faced with a woman who undoes all her best laid plans. Konner and Dunham described the part as "messy, tough and provocative and really, really fun."

"We love Jennifer's restraint and comedic timing, and we can’t wait for the warmth and intelligence she’ll bring to our central character, Kathryn. It’s truly a dream to have her first on our call sheet. Now we just have to write her some stunts,” Konner and Dunham said in a joint statement. It's unclear of Dunham will have any sort of an on-screen role in Camping.
