Steven Spielberg's daughter to make 'Girls'-type drama with Zooey Deschanel?
Is Steven Spielberg's daughter Sasha Spielberg gunning to be the next Lena Dunham? According to a new report, Sasha is looking to create a "Girls"-style TV drama inspired by her own life.
According to Radar Online, Sasha is hoping her friend Zooey Deschanel will help her create the project. Spielberg reportedly read Sasha's "autobiographical and graphically sexual" script and encouraged her to go forward with the TV show.
"The plot is shocking in its depiction of Sasha's romantic life as a student at Los Angeles prestigious Marlboro School for girls," a Radar source says. "How far it will go will depend on the network, but TV insiders believe it's in the vein of Lena Dunham's HBO show, 'Girls,' or a younger version of 'Sex and the City,' featuring no-holds-barred depictions of the sex lives of young female students. ... The show is expected to be confirmed very soon."
Right now this project is still in rumor stage, but considering Spielberg's stamp on television, it would make sense that his daughter would want to tell her own story. The 23-year-old has appeared in several of her father's movies, including "The Terminal" and "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."
