"Girls," HBO

Why this show? It was only a matter of time until Lena Dunham's show about 20-somethings trying to make it in the Big Apple featured a character on Broadway, especially since the show stars Broadway vets Adam Driver and Andrew Rannells (plus, the occasional Patti LuPone cameo).

Possible plot: Marnie's new plan to overcome her YouTube shame is to become a legit Broadway performer. So she enlists Hannah (Dunham) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) to write her an edgy Fringe Festival musical that she produces with money Jessa (Jemima Kirke) has made by selling drugs.

Odds: High. The choreographed dance sequence in season three's "Beach House" was one of the show's best moments so far.
