'Girls' exec producer Murray Miller developing HBO comedy

By Kyle Johnson,

Girls executive producer Murray Miller will be developing a comedy with Enlightened's Mike White called Mr. Romance.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Miller signed a two-year deal with HBO and as part of that deal, he was promoted to executive producer on Girls and will work on the new comedy.

Mr. Romance is based off of Joshuah Bearman's McSweeney article "The Only Muscle I Can't Control: In Search of the Next Romance Novel Cover Man." The non-fiction article discusses exactly what the title suggests, the search for the 14th annual Mr. Romance Cover Model.

Miller will team up with Casper Christensen to write the script. Bearman is set to be executive producer and White and David Bernard will also executive produce under their Rip Cord Productions.

Miller's Girls is approaching the premiere of its third season and in November a trailer was released, which showed what viewers should expect after a darker second season.

The trailer shows Lena Dunham possible trying to make things a little lighter in tone for her characters.
