James Frey Working on HBO Series About Porn


Oprah’s least-favorite, not-so-seriously-addicted faux-memoirist and secret sci-fi writer James Frey is developing a series for HBO about porn. The one-hour drama, being executive produced by Mark Wahlberg, focuses on a “giant video company under siege from Internet competitors” and a Midwestern girl trying to become a star. Frey humbly suggests, "We're going to tell the type of stories no one else has told before, and go places no one has gone before." It will feature both porn actors and non-porn actors (like Entourage right now), and, likely its most obvious selling point, tons of nudity. [Page Six/NYP]
