The powerhouse pair will work as a team to produce a dramatic series on a subject close to their hearts
Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are gearing up to work as executive producers on a television project, but the couple's latest endeavor is a far cry from a fluffy reality show about their lives as celebrities.

The pair of U.S. actors will unite with Scott Burns, an Oscar-winning producer who also co-wrote The Bourne Ultimatum, to produce an HBO dramatic series about the inner workings of a humanitarian organization and the lives of those assigned to work in dangerous areas.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Jolie, 32, has wanted to develop this project since she did Beyond Borders, a drama about the hardships endured by relief workers in war-torn areas. The actress has been an ambassador for the United Nations' refugee agency since 2001; she's traveled all over the world to aid victims of war and natural disasters.

Jolie and Pitt, 43, are known for their altruistic efforts. A year ago, the pair created the Jolie-Pitt Foundation that provides financial support for international organizations such as Global Action for Children.

For now, the project's name still hasn't been announced, or when shooting for the series will begin.
