HBO has set Maria Bello (The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor) to develop and star in an untitled new series for the station.

According to Variety, the hourlong project will be created and penned by Gary Lennon (The Shield). Bello is set to star as a woman who's forced into a life of crime to support her three teenage sons after her husband is killed. Bello's character employs her sons as henchmen, leading them all down a destructive road.

The drama represents a return to TV for Bello, who spent two seasons on ER in the mid-1990s.
