With the third season of TV dramedy Girls hitting Sky Atlantic from today , we caught up with the show's stars to get the inside scoop on all things New York.

We bent creator / writer / director / star Lena Dunham's ear on just how she took the show from page to screen – and turned it into a Golden Globe-winning success story.

We also spoke to cast-members Allison Williams and Zosia Mamet, as well as producer Jenni Konner about Lena's scripts / what Judd Apatow brings to the table.
