The two-person "justice league" of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are executive-producing for HBO a drama series that will explore the behind-the scenes politics of an international aid organization and chronicle the lives of the humanitarian workers assigned to dangerous areas of the globe, says the Hollywood Reporter. Scott Burns ( The Bourne Ultimatum) will pen the script.

The as-yet-untitled series has been a passion project for Jolie ever since she starred in Beyond Borders. It marks her first HBO enterprise since winning a Golden Globe 10 years ago for bedding Elizabeth Mitchell in Gia.
