Lena Dunham is bringing more Brooklyn to HBO. Vanity Fair has reported that the Girls auteur’s production company is behind a documentary about Bindle & Keep, a bespoke suit-maker based in the borough that has gained attention for its work making suits for transgender and female customers. Dunham, who will be an executive producer along with Girls‘s Jenni Konner, tweeted:

“We were totally blown away when Lena’s team first reached out to us—the art we practice is so specialized that it was hard to believe heavy hitters were taking an interest,” Bindle & Keep’s owner and founder Daniel Friedman told VF.  The documentary will, according to VF, follow the process of having a suit made for some of the company’s transgender clients while “examining the significance of the process for a set of customers with complex gender identities.” The New York Times profiled Bindle & Keep last year and explained how Friedman began to cater to a market of which he had previously not been aware.
