Jolie and Pitt Producing HBO Series


Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are making their first joint producing effort with a series project at HBO, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The Bourne Ultimatum co-writer Scott Burns is penning the untitled drama, which will explore the behind-the scenes politics of an international aid organization and chronicle the lives of humanitarian workers assigned to dangerous zones and the people in need they assist.

Jolie, Pitt and Burns, producer of the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, are executive producing. Jolie’s longtime manager, Media Talent Group’s Geyer Kosinski, serves as co-executive producer.

The trade says the series has been a passion project for Jolie since she did the 2003 feature Beyond Borders, a drama about disaster-relief workers in war-torn countries.
