Why it took Jennifer Garner 12 years to return to TV
Garner stars on HBO's Camping 12 years after Alias ended its five-season run on ABC. “If people were offering me things on TV, they weren’t really making it to me," Garner, speaking to critics, said of not working in TV the past 12 years. She added: "I’ve always said and I assumed at some point, 'I look forward to going back to TV...I love the familial feel on set. I love getting a new script. There’s nothing more fun in the middle of the second episode and getting the script for the third. That’s just a super fun feeling. I wasn’t being offered things that I was saying no to.”

HBO programming chief Casey Bloys wants to make sure female storytellers are "well represented"
That was his goal with prestige female-centered series like Sharp Objects and Big Little Lies. “I think the power of female friendships is timeless so there is just an appeal to the storytelling,” says Bloys. “So it may seem on the outside like we are going to have all female stories all the time, and while I am proud of that, they have to be interesting stories and have something to say about how we live. We are not picking these shows just because they are female point of view, but we are doing them because they are interesting and compelling.”

HBO is bringing Jennifer Garner back to TV with the comedy Camping from Girls’ Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner
Garner is making her return to television 12 years after the finale of Alias finale for an eight-episode limited series based on the British TV comedy of the same name. Garner will play “a controlling L.A. mom who is far less cheerful than her Lululemons imply” who goes on a frustrating camping trip with her husband, her “meek” sister and her “holier than thou ex-best friend.” Dunham and Konner will serve as showrunners, while Camping creator Julia Davis will also serve as an executive producer. “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,” Dunham and Konner said in a statement. “It’s truly a dream to have her first on our call sheet. Now we just have to write her some stunts.”
