HBO and Maria Bello Team for New Series


HBO has signed a deal with actress Maria Bello (The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor) to develop and star in a new series for the pay channel, says Variety.

The untitled hourlong project will be created and written by Gary Lennon (“The Shield”). Bello is set to star as a woman who’s forced into a life of crime to support her three teenage sons after her husband is killed. Bello’s character employs her sons as henchmen, leading them all down a destructive road.

Bello will executive produce with Lennon; Gavin Polone and John Carrabino are also executive producers.
