It seems the wheels were spinning a bit faster on this one than we thought. As reported earlier, Angelina Jolie was shopping around the idea of a drama based on the relief organization Doctors Without Borders. HBO was her main hope to host the series and apparently they’ve bitten. Not only that, but Angelina and Brad Pitt are set to produce. From the article,
“According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brad and Angelina will make their first joint producing effort with a series project at HBO.
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.”
We’re happy to hear that this project is coming together – and even more thrilled that it will be presented on HBO. A truly excellent opportunity to expose the world to the efforts of humanitarian workers, the dangers they face, and the hope they provide.
