The series, which star Jennifer Garner in the lead, has an eight-episode order from HBO and both Dunham and Konner are executive producing it via their company A Casual Romance.

Garner will play the role of Kathryn Siddell-Bauers, which has been described as "messy, tough and provocative and really really fun".

Tennant, 46, will play the role of Walt, Kathryn's "obedient" husband. He is a loving father, who is also the "reliable linchpin" of his male social group.

The show will follow a group of people as they come together to celebrate Walt's 45th birthday over a weekend spent back in nature, before it becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman-on-woman crime.
