Maria Bello to star in HBO's 'Emergency Sex'

Posted on

A History of Violence actress Maria Bello has signed on to star in HBO’s drama Emergency Sex, a series in development that will be written by Slumdog Millionaire writer Simon Beaufoy, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Beaufoy will also be an executive producer alongside Russell Crowe. The series is inspired by the book Emergency Sex and Other Desperate Measures: A True Story From Hell on Earth, by Kenneth Cain, Heidi Postlewait, and Andrew Thompson. The Hollywood Reporter says the show “revolves around the larger-than-life exploits of expatriate nongoverment-organization workers who find their sanity tested in the face of atrocities, loneliness, and primal desires.”
