Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will team up to produce a series for HBO, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The series will center on humanitarian workers deployed to various danger zones around the world. Along with chronicling the politics of an international aid organization, the drama will delve into the lives of people living in the midst of hot zones.
Jolie, who often helps people affected by war and natural disasters, serves as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations. In 2003, she starred in “Beyond Borders,” a film about relief workers in war-ravaged nations.
Last year, the couple founded The Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which has donated millions of dollars to numerous international aid organizations, including Global Action for Children and Doctors Without Borders.
“The Bourne Ultimatum” co-writer Scott Burns is penning the untitled drama, in addition to producing alongside Jolie and Pitt.
Pitt, along with Ed Norton, is currently producing a historical miniseries about explorers Lewis and Clark for HBO. Jolie returns to HBO, ten years after her Golden Globe winning performance in the cable network’s biopic“Gia.”
