Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are to produce a drama series together, according to a report.

The pair are to make the drama about a group of aid workers working in war zones, says the Hollywood Reporter.

Pitt and Jolie will act as executive producers on the serial along with Scott Burns, who produced Oscar-winning documentary The Inconvenient Truth.

Since 2001, 32-year-old Jolie has been a goodwill ambassador for the UN, travelling to disaster-afflicted areas.

On-screen role

The drama will explore the behind-the-scenes politics of an international aid organisation and chronicle the lives of aid workers and the people they help.

The couple, who have four children, have jointly supported a number of aid organisations through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

Doctors Without Borders and Global Action For Children have each received donations of $1m (491,000) from the stars' fund.

Pitt and Jolie's most prominent on-screen role together was Mr and Mr Smith in 2005.
