HBO Lands Hot New Drama About Sexuality and Relationships

Apr 11, 2013  •  Post A Comment

"After fielding interest from multiple networks, ‘Open,’ the racy new drama spec [script] from ‘Glee’ and ‘American Horror Story’ co-creator Ryan Murphy, has gone to HBO, which has given it a pilot order," writes our friend Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.

The story continues, " ‘Open’ revolves around five lead characters, including a married couple of thirtysomethings, the husband’s male co-worker and a woman in her 40s who is a yoga professional."

Andreeva adds, "HBO previously tackled the subject of relationships and sexuality with ‘Tell Me You Love Me,’ though I hear ‘Open’ takes a completely different approach. ‘It is a challenge how to talk about relationships and monogamy without feeling navel-gazing and neurotic, and (Murphy and [his co-writer on the project, ‘Dexter’ co-executive producer Lauren] Gussis) figured it out,’ said [HBO president of programming] Michael Lombardo."
