Forest Whitaker producing HBO pilot

Posted on

(FROM VARIETY) ? HBO has given the green light to Fat Sells, a drama pilot created and produced by 25/7’s Dave Broom (The Biggest Loser) and writer Gren Wells, and executive produced by Forest Whitaker. The project focuses on the head of an herbal weight loss business and how his life starts to unravel when the FDA begins investigating the company’s claims. Whitaker may also wind up directing the pilot. The actor will next be seen in Weinstein Co.’s Hurricane Season. He’s also developing a Showtime project about the rise of African-American organized crime in the 1970s and an FX show about arms dealers. (Variety)
