The wheels go round and round for Lena Dunham.

The actress, writer and director won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Comedy Series or Musical for her work in HBO's Girls. The show also picked up a second Golden Globe for Best Comedy Series, and now there's word that a bus tour based on the show may be in the works, according to BuzzFeed.

On Location Tour currently runs bus tours inspired by TV shows like "The Sopranos", "Gossip Girl", as well a number of New York tours that showcases parts of the city featured in movies. In an interview with BuzzFeed, Georgette Blau, On Location Tour's founder, says the show works as a tour because of the way it uses real-life locations in the script.

For the unfamiliar, Girls follows a group of twenty-somethings — Hannah, Marnie, Jessa, and Shoshanna — living through their twenties in New York City. According to the Guardian, potential stops include a trip to Hannah's possibly psychotic boyfriend's apartment at Prospect Heights in Brooklyn, as well as the various bars, cafes and bakeries visited in Manhattan, like BabyCakes, a vegan bakery on Broome Street.

The show might be less than a year old, with its second season having just started this week, but its popularity has given rise to a dedicated fan base. Some devotees have even created a Google Map of spots featured in the show, marking locations like Cafe Grumpy, a Brooklyn-based cafe; Tom and Jerry's, a bar in New York's East Village and the Bowery Ballroom, a music hall.

It's a show that resonates mostly with an audience in their twenties who long for a taste of the New York lifestyle and is often compared to Sex and the City, another show that has its own dedicated bus tour that's run by (yes, you guessed it) On Location Tour. In fact, the company's found such success with their Sex and the City bus tour that they've created a limo tour for women looking for a bachelorette party inspired by the '90s TV show.

But Sex and the City certainly isn't the first television show to warrant a dedicated tour. There's The Wire bus tour, which takes visitors through a tour of Baltimore, including some of the city's most crime-ridden areas. On the other side of the United States is the Breaking Bad tour, chronicling the locations of fictional drug dealers Walter White and Jesse Pinkman as they try to make a living by cooking meth.
