Oprah knows that sex sells, and we hear she’s focusing on developing a “sexually-charged” series for HBO! According to Variety Oprah’s production company Harpo is currently in negotiations with the premium cable channel for the pilot.
The hour-long drama is reportedly about a woman who leaves her seemingly perfect marriage and children in Santa Monica for the underbelly of L.A., where she indulges her secret fantasies and desires. Secretary writer Erin Cressida Wilson is writing the pilot, so can definitely expect this to be dark!
Harpo Films president Kate Forte has signed on as executive producer. "It is unsentimental and pretty shocking, and there is something complicated and destructive driving her," Forte said. "It is literally a day at the pool, where she gets up, in sarong and flip-flops, and walks out of her life, leaving everyone behind so abruptly that her husband and kids initially think she's been kidnapped or murdered."
Sounds scandalous, and we love it!
